    Default Lovely!

    Now that I see the flower (lovely as it is):

    My guess would be wardii x graveolens. It really looks like both of the species..but this is my guess... I'm not thinking it's a species plant, but a primary hybrid...what do you think, Aaron?

    These look like yellow vultures to me...but they are VERY interesting and lovely in that grotesque sort of way...

    Gorgeous blooms! The blooms of these stanhopeas are so amazing!
    The next question is what it is? Hybrid or species?

    Cheers. Hoa.

    It is definitely a hybrid Aaron thinks that it is a cross between a Wardii and an oculata. I am going with the ones that know more than me, that is like dancing with the one that brung ya,LOL I am open for all info.
