    Default Revived and flowering Tricophilia sp.

    After having some difficulty with this plant and fighting a very resistant and damaging fungus, the plant finally recovered and rewarded me with 6 beautiful flowers. Now I was left with a question ... what was it? Maybe someone can ID this Tricophilia for me.

    Wow!, what a recovery. It seems in perfect health now and besides the lovely colors on the blooms I am noticing the fat pseudo-bulbs. AL

    My thanks to you all for your comments and for an indication of the name. I has now a definite ID as Tricophilia galeottiana var. aurea
    But it has quite a unpleasant buggy fragrance and very insect oriented ... a bit like roaches. Not at all like the other sweet perfumed Tricopholias though it is truly beautiful.

    Buggy smell or not, what a beautiful plant. You must be quite an orchid doctor to get it to such wonderful health. Congratulations!
