    Not often seen, this intergeneric hybrid of Rhynchostylis gigantea and Vandopsis gigantea (whatever it's called now) is a bright spot in the winter greenhouse, with these colorful, deliciously fragrant, fleshy 2"+ flowers on long sprays on a large-ish (24" ls) plant. Somehow this blooms far more often and easily than its parents for me.

    Those are stunning. What temperatures does it need?

    Mine is intermediate, hotter in the summer as it's up high in the greenhouse with the vandas for maximum light.
