    Default Huntleya burtii

    I had some difficulty to recognize this species I thought it's a new species I'm asking Jay from Internet orchid species he also cant help me finally I contacted Patricia Harding which is the best person very knowledgeable that studying this species in detail from US. Here she quoted
    " Dear Zainal Abidin Bin Othman, to me this is no doubt Huntleya burtii. It is a very nice colored clone however, so treat it nice!. The second to the last picture shows me enough of the surface to say there is the honey comb surface of these, though burtii is not as prominently textured as say meleagris or wallisii.

    Patricia Harding "
    Thanks to Patricia Harding for helping me to solve this problem.Zain

    I like the form and coloration on this bloom. May I ask about the flower size and does it have a fairly heavy substance to it? Thanks for posting this Zain. AL

    The measurement for length and wide are 10cm x 9cm the surface of the flower almost smooth and not typical for burtii (,relatively rough),very tough and like a plastic material with a nice fragrance, thanks AL.
