    Default Maxillaria striata x luteo-alba

    Here's a bronze one for Louis. I think I like it, but not sure if all the space this plant takes up is worth it. I'll see how many flowers it throws out.

    This flower is about 4 cm across.

    oh this is one of the new acquisitions right? I like it... it's not altogether dull bronze... almost yellow/gold in parts... 4cm flower on what size plant?

    Cheers

    Yes, this is the plant. It kind of reminds me of a Aspidistra elatior (Cast Iron plant) if you know what that looks like. Each leaf is about 30 cm long and 9 cm wide. Right now it has 9 leaves with a whole bunch of new growths.

    It's growing on me.

    Have no idea what that word means and am too lazy to look it up.



    HOWEVER, I'm sure I would never let an orchid do that to me

    Hey Kev,

    Yeah, Aspidistras, those green things that gets put in the dark corner of every room... (can u tell I'm no fan yet )

    As for being androphytic, well you would be in good company, I mean, don't people tend to want to have those loverly flowers on their hair, or ears... so actually growing the whole thing on one's self would be a natural evolutionary progression... it's like growing bald, go with it, it's natural...

    Cheers

    epiphytic: grows on trees/bushes.
    lithophytic: grows on rocks.
    therefore
    androphytic: grows on man.
