Stanhopea embreei
Stanhopea embreei
One of the most spectacular and fragrant species of this remarkable genus. The very sculptural flowers are a creamy pale yellow with a vibrantly colorful lip. The extremely modified lip has a saturated orange base, marked with a dark purple 'eye spot', and a white 'tip' section marked with vibrant purple flecks. The pale green column of this orchid is also a prominent visual feature. Individually these fragrant flowers are short-lived, blooming only for about seven to ten days, but more mature plants produce multiple spikes sequentially, extending the bloom season. The strong fragrance is tangy and sweetly spicy. . Intermediate growing. July - August blooming. Species from Ecuador.

Stanhopea occulata
As well-known for its wild appearance as for its powerful fragrance, this Central to South American species is also very easy to grow under intermediate to cool conditions. Dark spots that look like eyes give it the name oculata. Spikes bloom downward, so they are best grown in open baskets lined with moss. Flowers last just a few days, so it is worthwhile to grow them into large specimens with multiple spikes, often blooming in succession. Cool to Intermediate. Species from Central and South America.
