Hello everyone,
I have been seeking a true Superbiens for a while and don't see anything other than curtisii and crosses. Does anyone have any sources or sell them themselves?
Best,
M

Orchid Inn has them listed, but they are possible albas if that matters to you.
Good morning, thanks for the heads up. Coincidentally, I had found them Just this morning and bookmarked them as a back up. Definitely looking for more of the true original with that deep muted color palette and gigantic pouch. The ones on their site are beautiful and I may buy them as well.

"deep muted color palette and gigantic pouch." = curtisii, not superbiens. Here is a true superbiens with a somewhat shiny pouch and large spots on the petals. Sam's are curtisii even though he uses superbiens in the description. Popow was the only vendor with true superbiens. Status unknown if they have anymore.

So based on your description, my superbiens is actually a curtsii?
