    If you say the bulb like Stanhopea I agree but not Coelogyne(distribution more in South East Asia)but one thing all Stanhopea flowers grow downwards.

    ok so probably Stanhopea with a little bit of coelogyne in it because the flowers grow up and it has two leaves, not one on each pbulb?

    I am glad to see this - I had a flask about ten years ago , and struggled with the seedlings for years , but they never liked my conditions and all faded away, one by one.. I shall have to look out for a BS size plant. It is very nice.
    perhaps the flowers are not long lasting, as is so often the case with these South American things ? Not that this would deter me, as long as "not long-lived" gives me a week or so.

    I also have developed a special fondness for many of the Central and South American orchids. I like to call them 'the New World Orchids'. I am enjoying this thread and learning something from it. AL
