The lowland form. Plant is just getting established - first blooming for me.
Nice . I have the upland form that put on four new growths/sheaths this year. Keeping my fingers crossed for blooms this winter.
i've had one for years, don't know if it's high or low land but mine won't bloom....
You know by size. The upland's are much smaller than the very tall lowland plants. Figure out which you have as their culture is different.
Nice!! That's a good blooming for not being established! Give it some time and it'll put on an amazing show!
C. maxima is one of my favorites- I love the unique shape and colorful lip.

Thanks! The lowland form is taller and needs warmer temps than the upland form. The Chadwick article is good. http://www.chadwickorchids.com/maxima
However, I grow upland and lowland together.
Turns out the form improved a few days after original post. I like it.
later pic is awesome ..they are more open and the natural light presents the color so much nicer !!
