Default Stanhopea lietzei (no 'eye-spots')

This clone of Stan lietzei doesn't have 'eye-sots', very common in this Brazilian species; we can see only fine purple dots in the epichyl and column. The hipochy has the "classic" shape for lietzei, unmistakable.

Neat looking flower, Frederico, even without eyes. (I guess it has a lot of 'blind' growths).LOL

Thats really cool looking! I think your plant might be the closest we can get to having an 'alba' Stan with large horns! In fact, if you selfed this plant, what are the chances you could actually get totally white offspring? It could be worth some money or atleast a lietzei var Frederico!

Hey Frederico,

That is one beautiful Stanhopea, even if it is blind. Thanks for posting these fantastic photos of it.

Does it have any fragrance?

Hi friends!

Thanks for looking! Stan lietzei is strongly scented, and you can smell the perfume even far way! The fragrance is very characteristic for this species (and delicious!); I don't believe that one can obtain a really 'alba' selfing that clone, 'cause it has purple 'dots' in the lip! Stan lietzei belongs to Section Wardii in the Subgenus Stanhopea, and Stan reichenbachiana belongs to Subgenus Candida, they are in fact very aparted in terms of morphology!

Thanks Frederico,

I'm really liking the sound of hearing that its fragrance is wonderful. And thanks for the additional info as well.
