    Very large flowers, about 14 inches in the north south direction.
    The plant was a gift, from old friends who at one time ran a specialist paph nursery in England, (they were long since retired ) and they went back in to clear up, when the nursery closed.They offered the odds and ends to friends - I had all the compost which was unsold - another had the last few plants ; The private collection, not in their speciality , they grew for fun, but moving to an apartment , and with no growing space, this one came my way. I guess it was one left over after they had sold a batch of plants. Still, sentimental value to me.
    Should produce far more flowers if and when it gets going properly. There are only about 4 bulbs, and the last - made up in my care is by far the best - but could easily be twice the size as time goes by.

    The cross is a primary in the genus - B.verrucosa - well known in UK, I have seen lovely specimens with half a dozen spikes - but taking up a lot of bench space ! x B.arcuigera , which is just a name to me.
