    Default Two bloomers

    A prolific blooming mini. Only downside is the flowers are a mere 2mm across, which makes it tough to take a decent photo without a macro lens.



    Only one bloom currently. Not sure why ... usually get 3. Flowers are short-lived as are most (all?) members of the Stanhopea alliance. Typically, a bloom will last about a week. Flower has a wingspan of about 5inches (12-13cm).

    I agree 100% Harvey. In my opinion, the Stanhopea alliance more than makes up for the short life span of the flowers with their uniqueness, ease of flower and culture, and in some cases their fragrance. Absolutely gorgeous flower!!!

    Really pretty, I especially like the top nor due to its delicacy.

    Beautiful - and even that small on the Chamaeangis you got a great pic - cute little flowers.
