Great flower! The depth of colour is amazing. I haven't seen one before with that strong colouration.

Paul, thank you ! It comes from La Cour des Orchidees.
Barry, to your opinion, what is the issue to have it in Honk Kong ?

We have a long & hot wet summer.Usually 32-35 Celsius and only 1-2 degree lower at night for 3 months. The temp will raise to 35-37 for 3 to 5 day before a hurricane.

Actually it's right that it prefers temperate climates (15-25°C)
Here it is on the floor of the greenhouse (medium light, high humidity, temps can be as low as 12°C) and it likes it!
when temps are 30°C in the top of the greenhouse, it's even cooler on the floor. Must be very hard to grow in hot climates!!

It's true that I have never reached such high temperatures at home. Too bad for you Barry :(

Thanks for the information! This is one of three species that I plan to add this year. I hope I am as successful as you have been growing it!

I love sangii as well.
Mine has been in bloom for almost 4 months now and it still looks good. Might end up as a personal blooming length record :)
