Stanhopea inodora "Point Loma"

Last season I've acquired this nice stanhopea and been waiting to see it's flowers - its stanhopea inodora "Point Loma" HCC/AOS. It's very nice variety of inodora, displaying deep lime green color with dots on the overlapping petals and deep yellow middle.

Like with all inodora's there is no scent ( inodora means "without fragrance, non-fragrant"), the colors are very nice and as the flowers mature the colors go more intence and luminous. The plant grows quickly, developing many new shoots and bulbs this season.

At this stage only one flower spike developed with 4 beautiful blooms and I am looking forward seeing more of them in the future.
