This stanhopea is one of the stunning orchids in the stanhopea range and I’ve been waiting for a while now to see its gorgeous flowers. Its just flowered revealing its majestic flamboyant flowers.
It’s native to Mexico and not often seen in cultivation. The flowers have this luminous quality to them and of rather large size with strong marshmallow scent. The colors are bright orange/green with tiny specs all over the flower.
My plant is of medium size and this is its first flowering season, so I’ve been looking forward seeing it being in flower.
