    Default pomatocalpa bicolor, philippines

    hi folks,

    this is a somewhat strange plant, its a huge one with relatively small flowers on a monster spike, but the way it branches out with hundreds of blooms makes it showy, it has a mild fragrance.
    second pix is for tom, who is tired of seeing my thumb!

    cheers,

    hi ron,
    dont you love my boxers, you want a closeup? lol

    @randy
    yes, its a true pinoy and it really looks like a vanda type or aerides even.
    leaves are extremely fleshy and hard though.

    cheers

    I like the photo of you holding the plant better. LOL!

    I see you've matched the patterns on your shorts with the color of the blooms! Hehehehe.

    Are those polka dots or mushroom patterns? Distracted me from the blooms at first. Nice closeups of blooms any way.Any chance of closeups of the pattern on the shorts?

    you guys are too funny!
    i had no clue my most beloved super kitchy shorts will steal the show, and yes those are ducks!!! heheh
    btw, i even walk around in our village with those, gutsy huh?

    well, the best part is, my gf took some shots first and i had no t-shirt on, but i decided it would scandalize this forum and now its my shorts!!!

    hmm, lets see what the ladies out there are thinking...
