Eulophia petersii

Eulophia petersii - photo by Richard LindbergOne of my favorite orchid society activities is open greenhouses. Yesterday was Mary Ann Alexandri’s and I remembered to bring my camera. The greenhouse was great, full but not cluttered; Phals on one side, Vandas on the other. It was 12x16 with lots of hanging pots.

One of her plants in bloom was a Eulophia petersii that she had won at last years BBQ and auction. It has huge pseudobulbs and 7-foot spikes. The pot sits on the floor and the flower I took a picture of was right at eye level.
