    Default Staurochilus leytensis

    Hi folks,

    this is my latest love, got a top cutting in buds, hence the awkward growth.
    flowers are the biggest i've seen in this genus, around 4x4cm, and a spicy fragrance.
    this species is very closely related to Staurochilus fasciatus, which has flattened sepals amongst some other features.

    cheers,

    The colors help me imagine the spicy smell... Would love to smell, and of course have, one of these. Beautiful.
