    Really beautiful, the shades of the labellum is spectacular. I have a small seedling of C.percivaliana but it's really not taking off, I wonder whether it is hard to grow?

    Hi Eric it's seem here I dont have any problem to grow them I have had different varieties of percivaliana like tipo, as above Maureen and few more, wondering whether they will bloom for me still have no idea some of them I saw the sheath but no buds at all. The media Im using here is charcoal plus fern root. Maybe you need to change the medium. I have Catt loddigesii used coco peat but refused to grow after changed to fern fiber and charcoal now I can see very healthy new pseudobulb.

    Thanks Zain for all the information above. I use pine bark with a little bit of charcoal, may be it does not hold as much moisture as fern fiber, I'm going to try experiment with different media and may be increase light, as where I was growing it before didn't get good light.
