    I have never seen this one!

    It looks like it is going to hug me!

    Thanks!

    That's really pretty. I like the way the top most petal is kind of curvy. It reminds me of those dancing flowers from the first fantasia. :)

    I like P. coccineum and yours is very nice.
    I know mine as a reliable bloomer and a compactly growing plant. It doesn't grow as dwarfishly as P. helenae but it reaches flowering size already at a leaf span of 12-15 cm.
    Best regards from Germany, GuRu

    P."coccineum" is definitely not legal here, however, since it is usually classed as a variety of barbigerum (either v.lockii or now v.coccineum), I would not be surprised to see it turn up simply as "barbigerum", as the larger varieties ("vejvarutianum, rhisomatosum) have. Take care, Eric

    Stunning is the word.
    When I can not take care of orchids any more, maybe this will be one out of a few that I won't mind watering.

    I could not help coming back to the thread to look at the photos again.
    Mesmerized. And I agree with everybody. I do want one too.
    If I have one like that, I may not be able to extricate myself from the bloom until it wilted.
