Today my Stanhopea Bellarensis opened its flowers and the whole house is penetrating with heavenly vanilla/ cinnamon scent.
For the past week or so I’ve been watching its 2 x flower spikes growing and flower pods getting bigger and bigger and this morning it rewarded me with these majestic beautiful flowers. Stan. Bellarensis is a hybrid between Stan.Insignis and Stan. Oculata and its certainly exhibiting characteristics of both its parents.
