    Default Psychopsis Kalihi alba 'Green Valley' and papillio

    Got the Kalihi last June from the bargain table because someone had cut off the flower. I cut off the rest of the spike and repotted the same day. The 1st flower opened yesterday and there is another bud developing behind that. Also two new pb. I included a shot of the plant just after repot and today. Also my papillio with the largest flower at about 6"x 4.5". Its been open for a couple of weeks now so the antenna are starting to curl back.

    Beautiful. They can grow in very nice specimens in a short time.

    Nice! I love the mottled leaves of the regular types, though.

    I like the mottled leaf ones as well but I've never seen one in person.
