    A well-known hybrid - a primary cross between D.atroviolaceum and D.rhodostictum. These are valuable plants in the collection because the flowers last so long - months, not weeks.
    The plant is flowering now on the 2016 cane which is some 2 inches taller and twice as fat as the previous one ; the 2017 cane is another two inches higher, but thinner, but I believe it will go on increasing as the 2018 cane grows, or at least I hope it will. New Guinea plants these, but at reasonably high locations so they will grow and flourish in my temperatures.
    I carried this plant in from the greenhouse for photography this afternoon, together with another plant I will post in a few minutes - Cyrostele Purple Rain, and my wife asked what had the wonderful scent. I had not noticed it in the greenhouse, amongst all the other scents ( there may be 50 or so orchids in flower of one kind and another ) . But now with just the two of them on my desk, I can't actually smell anything. But then it is dark ( apart from the screen and a working light).
