    Default Pescatorea klabochorum

    This is a great species. The flowers are so elegant. I love the lip -- the papillae and keels directing the pollinator to the right spot. Flowers are single but has produced several over the last two months. Fragrant as well. Plant is mid-sized (so far).

    Petals look nice and thick. Love meaty petals. That plant looks well established as well.

    They are meaty and hold up well for several weeks. Thanks for looking Don.

    Thanks all for looking and nice comments. Zain, I have that problem with many Vandaceous species -- they will grow here but not flower. But I can always look at pictures on your posts and others! Best, Mike

    Very fine bloom and by the sound of it a good producer of them. These flowers have spots, patches of color, and ribbons of red on yellow. That and its size make this a super plant to have. AL
