    That is an interesting flower, very feathery. First time I've ever seen this one, thanks for sharing.

    I don't know if you ever get to see Orchid Digest ? There is a lovely pic on the front cover this very issue - landed in my mailbox only yesterday , of S.reichenbachiana , with flowers a little darker in colour than yours ; probably a true representation of the plant in question, since the photographer ( Ron Parsons) who is an old acquaintance of mine, is rather a purist in this connection.
    A little known genus I think ; the people at Kew ( or maybe it is one of my paleontological friends) say it is an antecedent of Stanhopea - but rather preferable , in my prejudiced eyes.
    Well done for growing it, showing it, and delighting us - at least me !
    Thanks Geoff No I never have opportunity to see Orchid Digest , I agree with you S. fimbriata also is wonderful species under Sievekingia I was very unfortunate as I ordered a couple of years ago labelled as S. fimbriata after deflasked and the plant matured enough when the buds opened I'm very frustrated something that I already had again appeared in front of me just no luck.
