    I have several clumps of this but they simply refuse to bloom. I love yours, the patch of color on the lip is stunning.

    Oh well... ah... gosh... such beauty just leaves me staring and staring and not saying anything coherent.

    Last February, for the first time ever, I came across a local vendor at a fair who was selling the local species of rhynchos. The bigger potted plants with blooms were quite expensive and so I settled for the younger plants not in spike which he sold for about US $1.75 each. I lost one, but the other is healthy. Now established on a huge hibiscus bush, the plant has very healthy and stout roots.
