    That is a beauty, Erik. Do you grow it on mount or in pot?

    I have seen people grow it in a tilting pot(hang the pot at an angle). My plant is on stick mount and I need to remount it, so I will try few back pbulbs in pot...

    I really thought, this plant is overadvertised and more likely quite boring, but I have to admitt I've never seen close up true a lip, which looks quite nice!

    Disagree!
    piotrm, if you really know about this species, you would know it is not boring at all!!!!!!!!!! The color, the texture and the fragrance of the flowers are absolutely fantastic in my opinion. It is not an easy one to grow either.

    I agree with Tom, it is very challenging to grow well, but it is an outstanding species. well worth the effort. Some people think there are several species and that this is a complex. Some have really huge flowers, but all are rewarding.

    i don't agree too , grow it and bloom it during several years ... and let's talk about it after that ;)


    @ Marni : interesting the idea of complex ...

    Yeah .... mostly still look like boring yellow tulip, mariae is much more interesting and has better size of flowers, I know it is difficult I kill one time ago and have seen on a few shows in bloom, for me still nothing to jump, but about taste should we not discuss... still quite impress about a lip
