    Talking Den. atroviolaceum ( ' Pygmy ' x ' Little Elf ' )

    This is a new addition. love the lip color and form. This plant will bloom on previously bloomed canes as well as new canes sometimes twice a year. Right now it has 6 open flowers and 3 more in bud..

    thanks everyone....these have a very faint sweet chocolate smell mostly when in sun......Connie the interesting part about these spots are they are on the outside of the flower......when it opens the spots you see are actually translucent from the back side of the flower...some kinda of a brownish dark purple....but when you looked from the front of the flower...the cream/yellow /green colored petal/sepals make the spots look hazy which i find to be cool...so its a front and back kinda flower..hehe
