:confused:Doesn't look like a Grande? Most Grandes have darker color pouch and twisting petals..

Looks a lot like Phrag Macrochilum. Phragweb has some good pics of it and this fits the bill well, I think. The petals are much better here than the pics also.

Gilda, they're a bit easier to identify than the red ones. I like this one a lot. There probably are plants of it down here but not seen very often. Would love to get my hands on a plant. Any chance of e-mailing me a piece???

Wouldn't it be a piece be toast by the time it got through customs and cost a fortune to mail to boot ?? :confused:

Phrag. Macropchilum, eh? Another for my wish list -- I love the striped petals that fade to pink. And so long...

I do have a friend visiting your country in January...maybe she could sneak a piece on board the plane.:wink:
Not worth the risk, thanks anyway. Our customs & Quarantine go thru baggage pretty well. Flasks not a problem as long as they are declared and inspected + fee.
If you know anyone with flasks of P. tigrinum :drool:
