Laelia lobata Coerulea 'Paulo Hoppe' in bloom

Laelia lobata grows in Brazil on the coast. It needs very bright light and is hot growing.

When I read about Laelia lobata growing on rocks in full sun, I wasn't sure I could bloom it. I placed it high up in just about the brightest spot in the greenhouse and hoped for the best.

It has four flowers, all of them nicely formed. Since the flowers have just opened they should still be nice for the open house on Saturday
