    The flower is about 4" from tip to tip. I took this with a flash in the greenhouse and my arms aren't long enough to get enough distance between the lens and the plant to actually get the tips of the tails in the image. I've had this for over 20 years and after a decline a few years ago it has come back again.

    Thanks, masdevallia, you're right. Should post so late at night. Perhaps one of the moderators could correct the title and leave off the clonal name too.
