    This just opened today. The closest I can find is Jumellea jumelleana. The spur is about 4.5" long while the flower is about 1.25" wide.

    Good catch, Luis. I didn't notice that until I went to take the pollen out.

    Beautiful Marni, Like the mount too. What kind of stick is it?

    I think this is probably grape vine. I don't use it any more because it can hold up pretty well, but more often in rots rather quickly. I've been growing this potted for quite a few years and it is doing well.
