    Zain, you have quite a range of varying orchids. All shapes, colors, and sizes. This orchid proves how far you seem to reach out in your pursuit of the unusual and exotic from all over the world. The only conditions you seem to place on your collection is of course will it grow and bloom under your conditions. Al

    It's ok is not at all but very close to Stanhopeinae rather than Catasetinae, the psedobulb very smooth and seldom exceed more than 2 inches.
