    Default Psychopsis papilio

    Both flowers are out & a lot bigger than i imagined.They are 6" high & nearly 7" across if i gently pull the "wings" straight instead of swept back & down.

    I love the side view because they look so much like butterflys.

    By the way the red glow in the second piccie is coming from the growroom.

    Really nice, Steve! These are from that plant whose spike got broken, aren't they? Quite a comeback if that's so!

    I like the side view, too.
    From the front, it looks like it has short stumpy arms,
    but the side view shows the full story.
    Good growing, they are so alien looking
    with those antennae,
    I'd be staring for hours.
