Cattleya amethystoglossa var. coerulea 'Malibu'

This is one of my favorites Cattleya species -- Catt. amethystoglossa var. coerulea 'Malibu'. I picked up a single plant in a 2" pot about 5 years ago from a reluctant Ben Kodama (some Japanese growers were offering BIG bucks for his entire stock) in Waianae and it just took off!

When I was in Hawaii this past Christmas, this plant was sheathing with buds just forming. It makes me just a bit sad that I will not be there when it blooms again.
