    That is magnificently GORGEOUS!
    I believe this Stanhopea cultivar, the "Predator" clone, also got a FCC to its credit, the highest awarded S. tigrina! And it does not disappoint. Some of my Stanhopeas are in spike, maybe we will see them soon.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Diane,
    You might be able to see some of these guys in bloom during our incoming trip to Santa Barbara. You can grow these guys OUTDOOR in Southern Cal where you live! I don't know how Pete grows his, but that is how people around here grow them or at least the temperature tolerant ones.
    Cheers. Hoa.
