It’s purpurata season as seen in recent posts! I have my blue striata in bloom, up to 5 flowers on one spike. Very commanding height and stature. NS 15.5 cm. Also grown by DavidB.

The coerulea variety is named the Werkhauseri, though it’s more appropriate as a horticultural variety.
 
Lovely! Mine are a bit late this year.
I notice that one of the spikes is coming from a lead that appears to have grown much later than the others. The pseudobulbs is barely formed. Is this correct?
I’ve a couple producing late leads. Something that I’ve not seen before.
 
Gorgeous, my favorite color form of this species, very impatient for mine to grow up and finally bloom!
