    Default staurochilus tamesisii, philippines

    hi folks,

    im uber happy with this guy!
    fantastic chocolate color, red/maroon lines and dots running along the lip, 2 little horns above of the orange/yellow column and smells heavenly somewhere in between "trichoglottis" and "v. lamellata".

    jim cootes and me identified it according to the only existing drawing from 1955, so i strongly believe im the first one to post some pictures.

    i guess my pests "uber loved" it too, as you can see....

    thanks randy and others!

    put it in bright shade mounted, or better on a tree, and not to dry.
    it should do well among your tricho's, plant and size is similar.
    amazingly this guy is blooming in a young stage, unlike other stauro's, the biggest i've seen was 50 cm tall, maybe they grow bigger?

    here we go with another pix of the whole baby plant, and note it bloomed the second time!
