This one just opened up. I was friends with Fred and Ruth, and saw the malipoense in bloom long ago. It was the early 90s or late 80s. The pouch is very different from the one I bloomed last year. The stem is much longer and the webbing is darker.

Here is the one from last year. It opened more than in the picture but not fully.

I was surprised that mine was pretty fragrant from the malipoense. Have you smelled your? Looking good by the way.
Thanks for the reminder. I keep forgetting. Just went back to look at it and I didn't notice a smell. I will try again when the light has been on longer.
