    Default Orchid Needs ID - Flickingeria scopa?

    Cheers,

    got this a few months back, and it was a huge clump. I decided to divide it to
    fit my grow area and got 2 smaller clumps, and the smaller of the 2 always
    produces buds but i always failed to see the blooms so i bet it doesnt last
    long. This weekend, I saw that the bigger of the 2 has lots of buds.... from
    then on I always take a good look at it. And this morning I got a nice surprise,
    the buds finally opened. I had to bring it indoors to photograph it as its raining
    outside.

    Anyways I hope someone can ID this, i think it may be flickengeria not sure tho.
    Flowers are mildly fragrant.

    Ah thanks for confirming Ron... I knew that the flowers dont last long thats why when I
    saw this open I immediately grab the camera. When I came home this evening, I took
    another look and the blooms have started to fade. But i think its well worth it, look at the
    lips on this one? and fragrant to boot. I have mounted it pendant in a slab. I have
    another one, I think another Flickingeria, now I just need to catch it in bloom.

    Beautiful, especially like hairy lip. It's a real pitty that so beautiful flowers do not last longer.
