    Default Psychopsis Mendenhall ??

    It's been awhile since I've been active, thought I'd share some blooms with you guys.

    Anyone have any idea on which psychopsis this is?

    I have a feeling it's mendenhall, but was hoping for a second opinion.

    The first flower. The colour is quite nice on this one.

    The second flower. Was very surprised at the size of this one, it must be 4-5" across. Largest Psychopsis flower i've seen thus far, even moreso on one of my own plants!
