    C. aclandiae coerulea x C. loddigesii coerulea. Too bad the coerulea color didn't come through for me. Still a beauty. The camera didn't do justice to the actual colors either.

    That is very beautiful ! Hmm coerulea would have looked way cooler though. Do you have just this plant or also have its siblings?? May be one of them turns out to be coerulea. Just saw some other pictures on the web of the so called coerulea forms, neither of them looks like a true coerulea, infact your flowers are much better than many f the coeruleas on the web.

    This is the only plant I have. Got it cheap enough but maybe should have bid on more.

    It's still very beautiful, even with less of the coerulea. I really marvel at how beautiful C aclandiae primary crosses are. My C Landate( aclandiae x guttata) is blooming at the moment and I'll be posting pictures of it soon.

    I bought one of these a while back. It was not in bloom, but the sample the grower had was colored much like yours...which would be fine by me. Now, if I can just get it to bloom!
