    Cattleya lueddemanniana var. coerulea.

    Blue variety, a clonal plant imported from Japan.
    It grows well, blooms regularly, needs very bright light during the growth period (especially in winter), but unfortunately never produces more than two flowers on a peduncle.
    But I keep trying..

    What Spiro said. I only have one plant of this species and so far it has only given one flower at a time. I'll keep trying too.

    Thank you :)
    Yes, the most compact one of my lueddemannianas.

    Marni, thank you, they are easy-bloomers when having enough light and water, I use 150 watt LEDlights which provide something about 60-65 000 lux. I use them on maximum only for lueddemannianas and dendrobium species.
