Epigeneium triflorum var. orientale
Very lovely blooms. Simple and elegant.
I wonder how different this is from E. acuminatum?
And why is it called triflorum?
nice on Tom.
And, why var. orientale?
Nelson, E. acuminatum is a miniature and the flower is white, well, you have one of those, I believe. E. triflorum v. orientale is not a miniature--my plant is 8-10" tall overall. The long lasting flower of E. triflorum v. orientale is basically creamy white but with a little bit of creamy yellow on the petals and sepals and the lip/throat has more color(purple red).
Marni, I have no clue why they call it triflorum, certainly it has more than three flowers.
Let me know when you find that out, would you?
I like your wit!!!
Nice Tom, maybe it's origin is the orient.
That is nice!!
Well done Tom!
