I want to see the whole plant, so I can beg!
Begging works but bribes work better
Tom Looks like its big enough to beg for. Looking good.
Yeah, it can be divided into two easily
Harry, do you have a bicolor also? I wonder the diff between these two.
Nice one Harry!
Tom, here is a picture of my bicolor... looks like it has a lot less purple on the lip.
I do have bicolor but it has not flowered for me. This plant is generally a little smaller.
Harry, does your flower open a bit more than that? My bicolor is in bloom now(I think) and I will compare it to your bohnkiana... please post your observation because I do want to know the diff.(plant and flower). So far, based on photos posted here and other websites, I think it is just an expensive and slightly modified bicolor...
I had thought the same thing and I really don;t know whether it is or isn't. The flower never really opens anymore than this from observing the 2 times it has flowered. Looks like this species was described in 2004 in Brazil. It's said to be smaller than bicolor but very much like it in all other aspects. I have no idea what was said to be the factor for making it a separate species.
Mine was imported as bohnkianum. It was a little pricey at $25 but not bad I thought.
