    Default Stanhopea costaricensis Stan wardii stan gibbosa and Stan inodora x oculata

    Now that I have got the hang of downloading photos here are a few more, this time whole inflorescences in order they are Stan. wardii, the next is labelled Stan. costaricensis though I suspect it might be gibbosa, next is labelled inodora x oculata the flowers are fairly typical of oculata but the hypochile is a bit broader and the plant is very vigorous as you would expect from a hybrid, lastly is an old clump of tigrina [nigroviolacea]. Although I have only been collecting Stans for about 2 and a half years I have grown this plant [from a small division] for about 12 years, it now just hangs from a chain at flowering it had over 150 bulbs and 30 inflorecences.

    Default Wrongly identified Stanhopeas

    Stans are notorious for being wrongly labelled have a look at these 4, the first is a typical wardii, the next 1 is labelled wardii 'Clear', the next is the first flowering of a seedling named wardii 'Aurea' and the last 1 is labelled 'Jack Quigley' [wardii x inodora] my theory is that the wardii 'Clear' and 'Aurea' are remakes of 'Jack Quigley' they don't appear to be true wardii, there are lots of these seedlings labelled 'Aurea' being offered for sale here in Australia. We are such a small market that just 1 breeding is enough to swamp all the specialist nurseries and enthusiasts in one go. This is the 2nd 'Aurea' seedling I have flowered, the 1st was very similar. inodora is now considered by Rudolf Jenny to be a synonym of ruckeri, I have a plant labelled inodora that flowered this morning and the shape is identical to the ruckeri in my previous post, interestingly the so-called 'Aurea' and 'Clear' are much larger than ruckeri and wardii

    Thanks ksriramkumar, they are grown in plastic net baskets lined with a thin layer of sphagnum moss then filled with coarse bark, charcoal and perlite though lining the basket with loose coconut fibre instead of sphag works well too. The sphag holds lots of water and nutrients usually when you repot the roots are crowded into the moss.
