    Hi Mieczyslaw

    The flower is the same like your and I think plan also the same. My plan a bit big, the longest leaf about 30cm long and 3.5cm width. The flower about 1.7cm and it also fragrant.

    I have 3 other species have flower same structure and just a bit different in colour but the plan are totally different.

    What about Gastr. bellinus? I think it's your nice, fragrant Gastr. My plants are flowering at the moment as well.

    Thank you lanlua.
    It seem look like Gastrochilus bellinus more than Gast calceolaris (I just check from the list I have and from Lao check list so I might be not enought species).
