    I just found this beauty in my collection. I think I got it from a friend in Thailand, but the specie is from PNG so I'm not sure anymore.
    Love the little hanging buds.

    Very cool! I like the little round pbulbs, too.

    That is a great find. How big is the flower?

    The flower is rather big, from top to bottom it's 65 mm.

    Thanks, that is bigger than I would have guessed.

    Linda, I'm not sure if the size is different from clone to clone, but it should be about twice the size you mentioned.

    Hehe. I just guessed, Mikael is doing the measuring right now and tells me that it is about 10 cm. Maybe I need glasses?
