Now this one does smell bad. (POO) The flower is about 3" tall and a sequential blooming spike, so the fun should last a good long time.

Very pretty ! - the flower seems quite similar to B carunculatum

It is very similar. Carunculation has cleaner yellow sepals, a bit bigger, and the lip structure is black with different structures on it (carunculas).

Orthoglossum has a smooth, red, 3-lobbed lip.

I've had people cut spikes for me so I could sneak in a plant. :noangel:

Very nice Rick, except for the fragrance, of course.


All husbands have ways of getting things in the house without notice until it is too late.....my standard response "OH, I've had that...."
