This is the species that got me into slippers too. I still love to look at them regardless of how many I see. I guess because they have been in cultivation for so long you hear very little of their native habitat. My references locates the source of the species to the Phu Luang Mts. in Thailand, with very restricted range. I did some internet searching and found that the locals know this flower as the "dragonfly" flower. I have never seen an in situ picture of this species, and would like to know more about its habitat. Anyone???I've seen already plenty of P. sukhakulii on photos and personally but every new one is a beautiful sight. And your photos are always an eye-catcher and show it in a stunning way anyway.

Dot, I always buy 3 if I can afford it No agonizing and I always get a keeper that way:wink:Thanks, everyone. I am really happy this turned out so nice -- Zephyrus John will tell you I agonized over which one to buy. I have this in the Ann Arbor show this weekend. We'll see what the judges think (and what kind of competition it has).
