    Default C Bactia 'Grape Wax'

    I have 2 of them and this was is suppose to be 4N.... The second pic is from my other one but when the plant was less mature. It should bloom in a few weeks and I will compare then. Looking at the 2 pics, the first may be 4N

    not a real pink. As in the clonal name 'Grape Wax'....It is of heavy substance, glossy and grape purple in color. It is one of the few larger Catts that I keep in my collection. With it's background, the plant gets 2 feet tall but I love it and find room for it. C. Hybrida is another that get's tall but is a must have.

    When you are dealing with plants with C guttata in the background, you have to expect them to get tall.
