    This is Holcoglossum flavescens - I don't have that species in my collection - I have two or three other Holco's but they don't seem too anxious to flower for me :the other parent is Rhynchostylis gigantea , var Petoniana. I have several Rhynco gig's but mine are merely different colour forms. Maybe Petoniana is too - I have not been able to track it down.
    I see that I showed this plant in a posting just 12 months ago, with a single spike, and here it is again but with two. Clearly it is seasonal , so I can look forward to it at Christmas in the future. Perhaps with a few more flowers, as it gets bigger, for it is still only a baby - growing in a 4 inch pan. But the good thing about these little chaps is that there is room for so many of them .

    It is Holcostylis M S Sunlight, registered in May of 2012. The flowers seem to resemble the Holcoglossum parent.

    I am not sure at all ; I couldn't find the variety listed, or anything like it , so just quoted what the dealer said. But an alba form makes sense, and if Petotiana is the name of that, then yes, that will be right. Thanks for info.
