Orchid for ID – 06/08/13 – RK : Attachments (4). 3 posts by 2 authors.
This orchid is growing in a friend’s garden.- an old world Orchid.
Pics taken by my friend in Jayanagar, Bangalore.
The first 2 pics taken on 15/07/13 at around 10.45 am & the rest on 31/07/13 around 5.45 pm.
The flower is about 3″ in size I’m told.

Would appreciate Bot. & Common ID.


I think its a Stanhopea (J. Frost ex Hook. 1829) species. This genus is distributed in Central and South America.


Same Stanhopea oculata
