    IMG_0026.JPG I just love these hairy flowers and leaves! Flowers last for several weeks... I enjoy looking at this plant all year long just for the foliage! IMG_0002.JPG

    Great plant, nicely grown. kinda hard to find a true hirsutissima, do you mind mentioning where this came from? I was initially tricked with D. lasiocampa, but now know the difference.

    Hi Ryan... I got my plant from a great grower in the SF Bay Area, John Leathers of Hawk Hill Orchids. John does fantastic Dracula, Masdevallia and Dendrobium cuthbertsonii hybridizing...

    Thanks, Dexter. I recently got an established division of Dracula chimaera 'Pacifica' that came from him, and i'm very excited to see what it will do. I'll have to contact him about the hirsutissima.
