On one of my shipping trips to Waldor Orchids, Dave Off insisted that I needed one of these. Not a large flower, but a very dark lip for a coerulea.

The parentage is C. Marcello Miranda x C. walkeriana.

This first bloom seedling has grown so well, that I was able to make two divisions when I repotted it.

Nice. I like the catts that have a spectrum of the same hues. Like purple to lavender here or the fuchsia to red.

Lovely form too
All the ways I grow are dictated by the choices I have made and the environment in which I live. Please listen and act accordingly

Wow, that lip color is quite intense! Such nice presentation for a first-time bloom.
