    Not much coerulea effect with this but such an elegant flower. This is the 1st one on this plant.

    You should be happy for the shape of this one Chris.

    I have one mossiae var. coerulea as well and although some of my orchid friends like it I think it looks a bit like a dragon, aggressive dragon even.

    Magnificent, especially against the small stature of the plant itself.

    Thanks folks! I have two other mossiae but the petals are more erect with this one and don't roll back like the others.

    Haven't seen too many flowers of this with a blue/ish flower, more the lip I think. This is a much better flower than many I've seen also. I'd be happy to have it.

    I've just seen one very much like this described as Cattleya mossiae coerulea 'Canaima # 3' x self on an online seller's website. Almost an exact duplicate, although I am not an expert on Cattleya Mossiae certainly. In fact I've never grown one, so I wouldn't know the plant from Adam if I saw it. The shape on these is certainly nice compared to most Mossiae I have seen.
