    On the second pic, colors may be a little out in the blue, lots of treatment to get it back to earth)

    Just a regular Gongora, pseudobulbs+leaves are about 40cm long.

    I love the look of Gongora's! But I couldn't stand the strong fragrance of my Gongora fulva so I had to give it away. How does this one smell?

    If you do a search on Gongora on the forum, there will be some whole plant pictures.

    I love this species. There seems to be a lot of variation in the spotting and color. Is yours potted or mounted? I have grown it both ways and currently have it mounted.

    A great grower of Stanhopeinae has ID doubts so it may not be histronica.
