    This is one of many plants I have of this species - I bought one, and it arrived with canes up to half a metre long (20 inches) and with masses of keikis. These account for having so many plants. This is not the original plant, but one made by stuffing a dozen keikis in a pot.... 2 (?) years later.
    Flowers about an inch across, a good apple green when fresh ( maybe Granny Smith colour ) fade towards yellow as they age. The near red on the lip fading to brown. I think it pretty. One or two of the pots are developing longer new groiwths now, and I gusess will take a few years to get up to the full length of the original, but never look as neat as they do at this stage (IMHO).

    I am always interested in names. Strickland is the family name of some of the minor aristocracy - live in a 13th Century castle in the north of England ( the English Lake District - very beautiful area ) - made their money mining lead and particularly zinc on the Cumbrian mountains, a couple of hundred years ago. The castle belongs to the National Trust now , although the family still have an apartment there. I guess that they had an orchid collection, maybe sponsored a collector or something - way back in the 19th century - just my guess. Botanical records don't always tell these sort of things.
