    Default V barnesii

    Fairly easy to grow. I can't detect a scent. 3rd blooming. I noticed that this one likes to grow the inflorescence in the groove of the leaf which can hide its presence for a while. Any water drops that may linger in the groove may start some rot so if you have this one, be aware.

    Very nice one. I can see that your clone has some purple on the lip. Mine doesn't have that.

    Thanx for the comments!

    Arne - yeah, I see that. Sometimes it blooms out with a very slight off-white color, too; almost between beige and white. This year it looks white.

    I also have a V. javierae, also, but it hasn't decided to bloom just yet.
