    Default Oberonia mucronata

    Hi,

    this species is also known as O.iridiflora, but was never published as such. Inflorescence is ca.25cm long.
    I'm sure my twin bro in here would love to have one!

    Cheers!

    I will take two bro.. Nice iris-like leaves.
    Lindley described it in 1830 as O.iridiflora but it was described earlier by D Don, in 1885, as Stelis mucronata

    Resurrecting an old thread. I just recently came across Oberonia maxima found very little information on it except it does appear in ISOPE. Now I'm looking around this forum. This is surprising that Oberonia are not as well known as it should be. I find this species appealing. I hope these are not difficult to grow.
