    I am waiting the plant to establish first I saw in one photo the flower opened very widely right now here very hot and the media dry very fast the young shoot already emerge from the base hopefully next season would be better. Thanks Connie.

    I pride myself that I'm not often stumped, but here I am . Clean bowled !
    One (can) learn a little something every day. Great !
    Hi Geoff thank for that info actually I'm aware about it I already heard Benzingia quite sometime in fact looking for this species for many years would considered myself very lucky finally got it during World Orchid Conference in Singapore through my friend, as you said this creatures the nomenclature still not stable yet make everybody headache they can simply change the name according to their specialty.
