    Labeled Stanhopea nigroviolacea, but not as fully colored as I was hoping. The 7"+ flowers are currently hanging in my kitchen, perfuming the entire house with their wonderfully rich fragrance. Grown in a 10" basket in a fine bark mix, high up in the greenhouse for maximum light, and kept wet year-round in intermediate/warm temperatures.

    Still very impressive flowers. How long do they last?
