    Default Prosthechea mariae

    This is one of my absolute favorite orchids. I posted pictures of my plant last year but this year it is even more grand. It carries ten flowers and the spread from the left to the right flower stem is about half a meter (a little less than 20 inches).

    Impressively well grown and a beautiful example of the species. A favorite of mine as well.

    Thanks friends. I just wished people didn't keep the belief that this orchid is a difficult cold grower. It isn't very difficult at all. Also, I found this plant in the corner of a regular gardening store in 2010 after it lost its two flowers and I paid 10 dollars for it. I call it my rescue orchid. The best things in life are free (almost).

    It has a very nice balanced look to it along with the beautiful flowers.

    There were lots of these for sale at the last show I attended. I wanted one terribly, but passed.

    Very good one. I am not sure if this would be a cold growing one. One of my friends here grows and blooms quiet well.
