    Default Thunia brymeriana

    I have long grown it under the wrong name ( T.bensoniae) but reckon that is is actually T.brymeriana.
    Easy - usually considered to be a coolhouse orchid in UK ( meaning a minimum night temperature of 10 deg.C ). but in fact, once it has dropped its leaves in the autumn, you can pack it in a box and put it in a cupboard until spring , without worrying much about temperature ; proName:  Thunia-bensoniae-1.-1st-Jun.jpg

    Wow! That's incredible! It looks like a fast-growing one, too. How tall does that get? I looked it up and couldn't find much information, but it sure is stunning!
