Very beautiful and a lovely shape and size! So what made it bloom after 15 years?? Did you start doing something different in its culture?

Thanks for the mail,this plant my wife got it from Carl Green nurseries from Canada.The plant had picked up fungal as well as rhizome rot was re potted treated with Alliette and Phyton 27.
The only thing different that I did was moved it to almost full light.Now the plant has rewarded a bloom for me.
regards.

Thats pretty. One question, did you mean that the hybrid C. mossiae x C. lueddemanniana was a parent of this hybrid? In which case I think there is an error in the name of this plant, or that you were warning us not to confuse the two? Thanks!

That's outstanding. Strange that it's blooming now, as C.mossiae is typically a spring bloomer.
