    Beautiful! Wish I could grow these despite how large they get. Alas, we seem to have irreconcilable differences.

    Brassidium Shooting Star 'Black & Gold'' - i suggest this, not confirmed due to shorted spider legs and a more 'than normal' controlled prortioned inflorescence, almost quite regimented than norm. best grown suspended/hanging has habit like most onc of collecting moisture in leaf/ bulb sheath. Produces a ton of roots from pot and aerial. Hanging improves air flow and allows freedom to mass root production. A pro and a Con depending on grower. I adore abundance of roots- so naturel. Im a sucker for all brass/ assia spider forms while i stay away from many oncids due to high susceptibility to rot (with me and my care). Has to placed out of heavy spray area with vandaceous.

    Carries quite a hefty price tag even with as little as two psbs, mature post bloom and 1 lead. Many price variables around the planet but base it on european observation.
