    To quote Winona Ryder in Beetlejuice..."I like the strange and unusual, because I myself am strange and unusual."Keep posting more of the same!

    The flowers are about an inch in diameter, the lip itself is also about an inch long because it is perpendicular to the sepals and petals. The canes end in a psb-like structure as you can seen from this pic.

    We also got a Flickingeria but it had not yet flowered.

    Some people mistake this plant as Cattleya because of the pseudobulb.
