    Default Stanhopea grandiflora

    I think this is the bloomin-ist Stanhopea I've ever had. Just keeps going and going and going. It's had about 8 flower spikes on it since February. Some have rotted and some buds have blasted, but it just keeps going. This flower just faded, and there are two more spikes[/B][/B]

    Considering the flowers areshort-lived, it's nice that it is blooming so frequently for you as compensation. How's the fragrance?
