    Here's one that I got from a friend. I think this flower is it's last hurrah after blooming all spring and summer.

    Ein, it's not fragrant, right now at least. I'm not sure what makes it var selby, that's the way it's labeled. Maybe it's a division from a plant from the Selby botanical gardens. I got it from joelin, maybe he can chime in on it.

    Most likely "Selby" is just a clonal name. Good job, Josh.

    I love this species. Mine has been in constant bloom for 12 months now and it sure isn't from ideal growing conditions :)

    It's 'Selby' a clonal name not a variety. It was awarded in 86.

    This plant I got from CT orchid society and was growing in a very deep 4" plastic pot. It was not out of bloom for a couple of years. It started to decline so I divided it up and and harvested kei keis. Ive passed out many pots of it (including back to its original owner who killed 2 kei keis and to Josh) and what I have left is now stable and growing. It grows a little like a Restrepia in that all of a sudden one stem/leaf will get real tall and then the plant will boom. I think at maturity, mine was about 8 - 9 inches tall. I grow it in lower light and intermediate.
