Ocimum papilio (Butterfly Orchid)


Ocimum papilio (Butterfly Orchid) (Ocimum papilio)

A Friend gave me this Orchid, this is its first flowering. I had been reading 'Darwin's Flowers'. A close relative of this (Catasetum tridentata) is on the cover as it is one of the plants he studied to exlain his theory.
