HUGE flower and wonderful fragrance ... I love it even though its shape is not perfect (first bloom)



colors with flash light come out a lot more yellow than in person



for size comparison , this was one of my Fanaticums which is already pretty big (NS = 10-11 cm)

This clone seems to inherite a lot from the hangianum parent.
from the size to the dorsal shape, pouch etc.
Does the fragrance ressemble hangianum or malipoense or something in between?

What a beautiful, enormous flower!
Do you know of any vendors that are currently offering that cross? I'm not seeing it online.

Hien the fragrance ressembles that of hangianum (sort of honey, just like one of the hangianums I could smell some time ago)

I do not have very big hand s:rollhappy: but this flower really is huge, the NS is about 18-19 cm at the moment. I have to measure the pouch....

It is gorgeous, Sangii,

However,
Has something changed in the last two days (that I have been offline) I am not aware of? :poke:

MCCALLEN, Welcome to the forum. Please know that we have many global members here, which is wonderful, but they often have access to plants that we in the US do not. (I'm not sure where you are located...)
