Stanhopea Tigrina

Tigrina071016.JPGI purchased this Stanhopea Tigrina from the Santa Barbara Orchid Estate in my visit to their open house on July 8th.  They had several of these plant available, and I smelled them before I saw them.  This plant is in a 3 inch pot and has a single bloom coming.

I placed it in a wooden basket, and supported the pot with crumpled newspaper so that the inflorence hung over the side.  I will let it bloom, and plant it in a six inch basket after the blooms have faded.
