    Default Paphinia Majestic

    Been a while but mine decided to bloom again. Seems like it takes forever for the buds to mature but fortunately they do have some character even in bud stage. The flowers are short-lived like all members of the Stanhopea alliance lasting only about a week.

    The flowers have this eerie aura to it .... like some sort of spidery watery alien from an old movie I watched long ago titled "The Abyss".

    Eerie, strange but beautiful!
