    Beautiful! I've started collecting mini-catts lately. I have a Mini Purple but it's still too small to bloom. I hope it's as nice as yours.

    I have a coerulea as well Ron but it doesn't like me at all. Lots of trouble getting it to do anything at all.

    2 more, different Mini Purples to flower soon. Found them today, both a few weeks apart though.

    These purple ones don't have to be all that big to flower Jeff. Will flower in an 80mm (3 inch) pot.

    So pretty! I started collecting the smaller catts awhile back as well. I think mini purple is one I don't have, but it's lovely.

    To show what my plants are like, I'll post some pics of the plants. The bigger plants are in 120mm pots & the others are 80mm. They have been in these pots for a minimum of 12mths to 3 years+.

    The last pic 'Castle Creek', it has 10 canes Horst. The other plants, 4, 5, 8 & 9 canes.
    I have one bigger plant with 15 canes which I did take. It flowered a few months ago but I 'um' did the wrong thing & ruined them. Its also in a 120mm pot.
