    Default BC Hippodamia (nodosa x aclandiae)

    This is a little plant I got in May.Imagine my surprise when it came into bloom today as I thought it was just a sdlng.It is a huge flower-almost 4" from tip to tip of each lateral..The width of the lip is 1 3/4".I won't be surprised to see another flower from a maturing nearby pseudo in a couple of months or so.

    Ahh. Another Green and Purple. Plus spots.... As a nodosa cross, does it have a fragrance?

    Wow! I wish one of my boxstores had something like that in stock. The only things I see here look like they are living in a hell on earth for orchids. Very pretty flower.

    I love the lip!! I wish my mystery minicatt will have flowers like that someday. Its been with me for....I can't even remember how many years and it never bloom . I thought it was also a NOID seedling when I bought it but it never grow big. The pbs are no bigger than a pencil just like that growth in your plant, bifoliate too.
