Stanhopea oculata

This was labeled "Stan. bucephalus". It's from a selfing of a an awarded plant that was registered under that name... and awards tend to be cast in concrete. It is, however, a synonym for Stan....

If you water in the morning, so that any surface water has a chance to dry during the day, I would not worry about water in the crown. If you're concerned, you can blot up any that you see with a...

The original growth appears to be on its way out, though the newest leaf and the crown look OK. But with lots of roots, and new basal growths, I think that it will survive nicely even if it loses...
