Default Stanhopea costaricensis

This is a first bloom seedling of S. costaricensis that just bloomed for me. I purchased this earlier in the year from Tropical Orchid Farm and it has earned a good spot in my growing area. It has great color combinations of almost raspberry pink/purple on the hypochile and column. Nice camphor-like fragrance too!

I had this species from TOF as well and it is one of the few plants that I truly miss from the orchid sale I had when I left Hawaii. Yours looks great!
