    Plant is about 12" tall. The flowers naturally present upside down...neat, worth growing IMO.

    Orange and green is a great color combo, as is orange and white. IOSPE doesn't have much info on this species, can you elaborate on its care requirements? Also, is it fragrant?

    I don't remember if the flower was fragrant, but I am pretty sure it was long lasting...
    Like many of species in Formosae section, it likes/needs slightly dry between watering, light winter rest is a good idea. I grew it on the cool side of intermediate condition,(75-55F), on stick mount. medium light(1800-2000FC), good air movement too.

    Thank you all.
