Some of these species phals are simply devine in their elegance and its a shame their existence is so overlooked, suffocated by the mass phal hybrid market. Not dismissing some of the beauties available within the hybrid mass, the subject of your attached photograph is very special indeed. Superb!
Perhaps its the mass produced hybrids that highlight the sheer unique beauty of the species which in a way gives these gifts from mothernature something special indeed. In the coming spring these are going to become my priority to obtain.
