Stanhopea spindleriana

Stanhopea spindleriana. This plant is supposedly a hybrid between Stanhopea occulata and Stanhopea tigrina (shown last time). I'm not entirely convinced that it is not mislabled but that was the label it came in as anyhow. Most of the pictures on the web of Stanhopea spindleriana look more like the tigrina parent. Either way, it smells really nice and it is blooming at the same time as tigrina (which suggests it may indeed be a hybrid with tigrina). I'm not kicking it out of my greenhouse!

Your greenhouse must be a wonderful place, full of colours and pleasant smell.
