I love it...but I think its v. sanderianum....sanderae has light spots. How big is it? The old sanderianum I had was much bigger than my normal insigne.

That is just stunning Dot. Lovely colour and form. It must have award potential. Beautiful photo as well. It made my heart skip. :)

Hi Dot,

Beautiful flower. If you look closely and see faint spots anywhere on the dorsal sepal, it's most probably var Sanderae; if there are no faint spots visible, then it's var Sanderianum. I don't think it's a hybrid....

Thanks, everyone.

In certain light, before I read all these posts, I saw very faint spots on the dorsal. At the time, I thought it was kinda neat. Now I see it is also a form of ID.
