    I should have been more descriptive. Its a cross between Sarcoglottis speciosus x Stenorrhynchos speciosum. Very easy to grow terrestrial with somewhat ornate leaves. Though mine have faded a bit on the yellow side. Too much light prior to the bloom.

    Nice. You should show the leaves. Mine almost died from fungus gnats but I kept it around and it's coming back.

    The leaves

    Im assuming the yellowing is too much light, as it sat too often in a southern window, getting very bright / direct sunlight during early spiking.

    Lovely flowers.

    You are right about the light being too strong for these. Mottled-leaf Paph light or less...

    Actually, on the leaves the green is shiny and it has white spotting.

    those seemingly came out of nowhere in the past year or two, it seems.
    i've heard the flowers range in colors from yellows to oranges to reds, but i could be confusing it with something else...

    Ya, they are getting to be "common" around here. Hoosiers and Oak Hill have them. I got mine from a guy here local, and im quite sure it came from Oak Hill. Although, i got it because it was labeled Sarcoglottis sceptroides and had wanted one for a while. They look very similiar, except flowers are light green and praying mantis-like. There is so much similarity in the leaves of these things its hard to tell until bloom. Last month Hoosiers came to our meeting and spoke on Gongoras. Erich brought 2 sceptroides. Both had very round, low lying leaves (hardly above the pot). One had leaves with white spots and the other white streaks. Would have loved to had both, but at 40 bucks a piece, i passed.

    Thats actually where i got mine. I gave him crap about it, in good humor. He had several more in spike, and we were waiting to see what they were.
