Stanhopea Spindleriana




My stanhopea Spindleriana flowering at the moment. This one is one of the rare and unusual varieties and rather hard to find. Its opened its flowers this morning and this year it’s developed 3 flower spikes with 6 flowers on each spike. The flowers are beautiful pale cream with burgundy color spots and the scent is heavenly marshmallow/vanilla scent. Stanhopea Spindleriana is registered hybrid between Stanhopea Oculata and Stanhopea Tigrina and one of the beautiful majestic orchids from the Stanhopea range.

Nothing like that grows here,America.What season is it there for you,seeing is believing.And its probably nice there compared to up here,as its tocold.
I suppose I would raise indoors,but then I would probably kill it...
