Default cornu-cervi chattaladae

This flower has been open for about 2 weeks. I just haven't been able to get a picture yet. Still looks amazing and I feel it is darker than this picture shows. The sun was out when I took it. I bought this from Orchidview. I think they still have a bunch.

That's awesome Ben! I may have to get one of these. I have the flava form which is pretty nice too.

Ben,

Outstanding! I don't know if I've ever seen a nicer one. Orchidview, eh? I might just have to pay them a call.

Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful! I guess there are several color variations of cornu-cervi.

Ben that's awesome! I tried my hand at cornu-cervi before and didn't do very well, may just have to try again after seeing yours!

Gorgeous! Nice pic, those waxy blooms are hard to get nice photos of. I really want one, but they tend to be a bit pricey.

That is a beautiful flower. How did you get it to be that shiny? Is it fragrant?
