    Oh I forgot to update on this. Unfortunately the capsules did not like the uprooting and the bareroot transport of the plants from Bremen to India. They turned yellow and mushy in just a few days. I still have the parents may be I will try it the next time it flowers.

    Coeruleas are notorious for not carrying capsules full term. You might have to go with green capsules and embryo rescue. This is from the collected papers of Carson Whitlow : Blue Cattleya

    Embryo Culturing
    Embryo culturing has proven invaluable in working with the blue color line. A number of the
    species and hybrids will not carry a pod to maturity, and those that do often give little viable
    seed. The advantages of saving time, less drain on the plant, and better germination are well
    worth consideration. The lengths of time noted below for the blue varieties of the species and
    hybrids are from the time of pollenating the flower to the removal of the pod. They are not
    optimal minimums but are workable and can serve as a guide to those interested in this
    technique.

    L. perrinii
    L. purpurata
    Lc. Jericho

    5 months
    C. Portia
    C. Undine
    Lc. Blue Boy
    Lc. Mariner
    Lc. Poor Paul
    Lc. Schilleriana

    4 1/2 - 5 months
    C. Ariel (watch carefully for signs of splitting)
    C. intermedia
    L. anceps (column may dry, stem turn yellow)

    3 1/2 - 4 months
    Lc. Parysatis (remove when column yellows)
    Anyone considering breeding coerulea catts will find these papers an invaluable resource, that will save them countless hours of frustration. And Carson is one of the nicest people ever!

    I think you will have a very graceful flower. Good luck Amey!
