    Got this from Hoosiers last year when they were going out of Bis., I purchased several Barks. and this was the smallest one and the only one to bloom this year, all others grew great and had excellent roots but no flowers. The flower on this one is the biggest Barkeria flower I have ever seen and I have been growing Barkerias for a long time. I hope next year for more then one floewr on a spike.

    Flower size, petels and sepels just a little over 1 3/4 inches, lip just short of 2 inches long and 3/4 inch wide, all my other barkeria species and hybrids flowers are small comparred to this steroid monster.
