A nice bright colour and an unusually large lip for a Formosana.

Thanks Terry , Steve.
Interesting about the lip, I'm not sure if it's a varietal form. Or even if there is varietal form available.
The original bulbs were from Taylor's about 5 years ago.
The colour is really vivid.

Hi Barnie, very attarctive too and with the striking colour you mention.
Must admit I tend not to look at Pleiones, not that I don't like them, but I know I can't grow them in my warm conditions so I don't torture myself looking at things I can't have !
Couldn't avoid looking at two Pleione Postings though, fascinating little flowers.

Steve
