    Cattlianthe Edith Loomis is this hybrids name. Registered in 1956.
    This coerulea variety shows clearly the influence of both parents.

    Sepal shape is from C. walkeriana, petal shape and the shiny freckles are from Gur. bowringiana.
    The lip is a mix and has traces from both species.

    After all it is a beautiful flower with this lovely coerulea color.

    On a well grown mature plant you will get more flowers on one inflorescence .
    But keep in mind that most the time coerulea clones are more difficult to grow and for this reason they usually produce less flowers.

    Don't worry about the immature growth. Only avoid accumulated water on the top of the grows.
    But you will loose your plant if you don't take care of the scales or the mealybugs your plant has underneath the leafs.
    Your plant has a nutrition deficit. The cell structure of your plant is weak. This attracts the little suckers.

    Oh yes on closer inspection the underside of the leaves seem to be heavily infested with scale, If I were somewhere in the UK I would loved to be your apprentice Geoff, I would have wiped out the scales from every nook and cranny LOL !

    Wow awesome colour, with some more flowers this could definitely win some medals. The darkening of the colour would be expected, as the pH of vacuoles in the cells increases over time during senescence. Really beautiful !

    Your tree is quite weak, I think you should cut the flower and plant care, when the plants healthy and growing well until then, let's watch the flowers

    this is my favorite color
