    Last bloomed this past June and now again. The flower bud seems darker this time around.

    Exciting! Seems like your tigrinum and my tigrinum has decided that winter is their season to bloom this year.
    Hopefully the bloom is darker with the colder nights and shorther days.

    I'm thinking about selfing it and saving some pollen to pollinate a helenae and hir. v. esquirolei that I have in bud.

    Bulolo, how long has the flower spike been developing? Must be close to opening soon? Or is the flower pic above the opened one, and you were just showing the dark coloured bud?

    This is the new flower. It probably took several of months since I first saw that it was in sheath.

    Spectacular. Love the symmetry in the markings. That always bugs me about these!

    Hey, hey...what a extraordinarily nice P. tigrinum. I won't say I'm green with envy but I#m close to that. Congrats!

    I selfed this flower yesterday. Can anyone tell me the maturation time for the pod if it takes?
    I saved pollen to place on to a helenae when it blooms in a couple of weeks. I also am going to pollen on a esquirolei when it blooms in a month or more.

    Can one say anything against this flower? Gorgeous colouring, nice shape and seems also to be nicely sized! Well, I can only think of one thing: it's not mine! ;)

    Thanks everyone! I love this species! I hadn't flowered one since the 90s when I grew orchids for a private collector.
    Elite Orchids, I think yours is a fine example!
