ORCHID - Cattleya Bowringiana var. Coerulea - SPECIES - RARE COLOUR FORM. Cattleya bowringiana is a lovely fall-blooming species from Central America. The clustered flowers are primarily lavender although there are some impressive albescens and coerulea varieties. Although C. bowringiana is the perfect plant for beginners, with its vigor and indestructibility, it is also an excellent choice for those who like to display their skills at growing. With just ordinary care, the pseudobulbs will reach 10 to 15 inches in height. In the hands of a skilled grower, however, the pseudobulbs can reach 20 to 30 inches. Instead of producing five to 10 flowers per spike, these well-grown plants will reward the grower with a head of 15 to 25 flowers. With two or three strong leads in a 7-inch pot, C. bowringiana can easily produce 50 to 60 flowers, and there is a record of a plant with nine spikes bearing 195 flowers (almost 22 flowers per spike). Like an actor’s actor, C. bowringiana is very much an orchid expert’s orchid. On offer a very healthy and mature size orchid.
