    So where does gigantea come into it concerning the blooms? LOL Interesting! I like how the blooms are so small in proportion to the size of the plant.

    That is a strange orchid bloom. Is that the pollen in the final photo? Makes my nose twitch just looking at it. LOL

    I guess those small particles are not pollens, isn't that? What's the use of them for the plant? So interesting!

    Odd little flowers. That does look like pollen on the end of the lip. Strange if so for an orchid.
