Looking for super rare cattleya
Default Looking for super rare cattleya

I saw a pic of the c. percivaliana coerulea “ondine” and I just absolutely fell in love with its color combination. For some reason it seems impossible to find in the US. I’ve been watching eBay for months but no luck. I saw on Orchid Board someone bought it from a grower that seems to have gone out of business it’s on orchidweb for $2000!?!!? That seems kind of crazy and I’m not that crazy! Does anyone know of any growers who might have this, even if international? It’s so frustratingly elusive.

There will be a lot of paperwork associated with importing from an international dealer. The exporter and importer will both need import-export licenses.

Did you try posting a message on the AOS facebook page? It's possible that somebody there could help you out.

Also check this.

I think they're mentioning isurus or 'isurus79' ... who is a forum member here.

Have you grown C. percivaliana before? It's not difficult, but you might want to be sure you can grow a less expensive one first.

I don’t have ‘Ondine!’ I know Palm has it. He’s in Mexico City though. Mick Fournier might use it in his breeding program.

Yep, Mick has a selfing in flask. He calls it "Undine" though: HBI, Producer of Fine Orchids in Flask

Is this particular plant actually super rare? It certainly seems like it is - especially when there's that 2000 dollar price tag from one online site appearing.

Some mericloning would be nice!!!!!!
