    Very nice, Mauricio! Never been able to bloom a Brassia or the hybrids myself. So I've settled for enjoying the flowers of others.

    The first time I ever saw this flower was a couple of decades ago at school when the 'destruction of the rainforest' subject went global!!!! The brassia flower was the cover of a deluxe photobook dedicated to the amazon that i treated myself to. This triggered a passion for the tropics which remains strong today.

    Very beautiful bloom and photo! Generally an iconic plant photography wise for its inflorescence and represents all things exotic even today even as a focal point aesthetically in dartfrog terrariums.
