Here is my P. gratrixianum finally flowering after a very long recovery process. I had a fire in my greenhouse about 13 years ago :oops: and this one barely survived, but now it is doing well and flowering for the first time. These are tough plants!
Anyway, I noticed the lateral sepals are kind of mirroring the dorsal, not only with the markings but also the shape, is this a common trait in gratrixianum?
