    Default C. Portia Coerulea 'Capri'

    Bought this one two years ago for my mother's birthday. It has had two spikes each year. The first two times there were 3 / 4 buds on each. This year it had a late start in growing due to the moving fiasco, but produced 5 and 6 blooms on each spike.

    The plant finished flowering about 2 weeks ago and the flowers lasted about 3 and a half weeks, getting slightly darker as time went on.

    By the way, the green tray below it is 30 cm in diameter (1 foot), so that you can sort of judge the size of the plant and blooms

    Ooh! Very nice! Great growing. Nice display!!

    This one makes me anxious to see my Bc Hamana Soft bloom. I keep peeking inside the new growth hoping to see a sheath. Watched orchids never bloom!
