    A huge Stelis. This came from Ecuagenera as purpurea Big. For the time being it is Stelis maxima, it keys out as Stelis allenii which is a synonym of maxima. I really need a good camera, the colors are hard to reproduce. IMG_20140426_44.jpg IMG_20140426_54.jpg IMG_20140426_48.jpg IMG_20140426_50.jpg

    It blooms sequentially for a long time. It's about 30" tall now, with the bloom spike staked up, the blooms are so heavy it tends to end up horizontal.
