    Stenosarcos Vanguard = Sarcoglottis speciosa x Stenorrhynchos albidomaculatum

    Nice silvery-mottled-green leaves on it too!

    It's only got a few leaves just now, and they're looking a bit ragged. With these and related genera, I think it's pretty typical for the foliage and the blooms to thrive in diferent seasons.

    Ah, yes, I see your Steno. there. Hm—perhaps it's not so typical, then? I know my Sacoila lanceolata v. lanceolata goes completely leafless before blooming, and stays leafless until finished.
