    Bought it as Porroglossum nutibara, but i think it looks like P. sergioi. Grows in the orchid cabinet, IC.

    It must be P. sergioi.

    P. nutibara has significantly smaller flowers.

    Edit: I just found the photo of my P. sergioi. Comparing yours with mine, I am sure yours is P. sergioi

    Thanks for the help on the ID Tom! I'll just have to get "another" P. nutibara...

    Very nice...
    I think there will be another Porro. on the way from Germany soon. "You" won a nutibara and a sergioi. They might have been mixed up. Eller nöe...

    The tag on this one (written by Lenhard) says P. nutibara... I wonder what will turn up next?

    If you can only get one, sergioi is by far my favorite. Hope you get them both.

    Gordon, are you happy to have the name corrected to Porroglossum sergioi?

    My understanding is that it was originally published as P sergioi (or just introduced into the trade that way), but was corrected to be Porroglossum sergii. KEW doesn't list P sergioi even as a synonym that I could see.
