    Default Galeottia negrensis

    Got this last December, it takes forever for the flower to come out, I first saw buds over a month ago. I have another bulb growing that I hope will give me another chance for more flowers later.

    Do you have many spots on the foliage?
    Mine has some but I don't worry over it.

    Harvey,
    I hope yours will finally bloom for you also as this one is a beauty! I have put this on my back porch in front of my kitchen window so that each time I go into the kitchen I will see it.
    Thanks
    Jack

    I have received a reply from the grower;

    "Hi Jack,
    Yes, somehow (tags must have been switched) you do have Galeottia grandiflora or fimbriata (they both look the same) I am sorry about that! Please let me know if you would rather have the Glta. negrensis, as I only have a few left.
    Yes, it is really cool looking!
    Happy Spring!
    Sheri"

    Now to decide what it is I have as the two that she mentioned are extremely close to each other.

    Hi Jack as I told you yours is fimbriata based on the lip and look at my grandiflora here.
    http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...andiflora.html
    I suggest to you better take negrensis from Sheri this is not not that easy plant to get I'm still looking for fimbriata apparently very difficult to get here.

    Zain,
    I replied to her email to save me one before I posted her answer on this thread.
