It is quite annoying to photograph/set up lighting for this thing because of the pendant flowers than point straight down. The oxblood red flowers have been very variable in size over the past year I've had it. They've varied from 4" wide the first time it bloomed for me, to almost 6". This time is on the smaller end, a little over 4½", though it does have four spikes at the moment. I get the impression it blooms more in cooler weather, but larger flowers in warmer weather, though I could be wrong. Unfortunately, like most Stanhopeinae, the flowers are relatively short-lived, about 4-5 days. It does bloom often though, over a dozen times in the past year. The white palp-like things on the lip move around at the slightest breeze. Growing it very moist, intermediate (it would probably prefer it warmer), bright shade.
