Well it looks like one of us does NOT have an elephantium. Mine has not bloomed so I don't know what the flowers look like but your plant looks a lot different than mine. Mine is a very sturdy plant with very turgid leaves and the leaves are very close together. I know that the flowers are supposed to be white with maybe a touch of yellow or green I have never heard of one so bright pink. You could contact your grower to see what he thinks....Jean

I would say that you have a Barkeria type hybrid, that is not even close to an Ang. Species.

I grow alot of orchids and have both Barkeria and the Ang. You are suppose to have.

That plant in picture is mislabeled.
