    Personally I don't have C. maxima in my collection.
    Looking at the images of yours I'm tempted to try.
    I'm in love with the coerulea variety. It looks like the color is a real blue and not like most other coerulea flowers a bluish purple.
    Further it look like they like the Guangzhou climate.

    Hi Ksriamkumar, the coerulea form is low land type(long cane) and the other is high land type(short cane). C.maxima is one of the most easy growing cattleya, as well as most cattleya hybride.

    Hi Horst, C.maxima is a must-have cattleya for a orchid lover. Most cattleya like climate of Guangzhou.
