Stanhopea embreei
   What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than with an astonishing Stanhopea orchid!
embreei has from 8 to 10 large yellow flowers spotted with reddish brown spots. They look like large flying insects. Epiphytic on trees and on rocks in humid forests. This widespread species has a spicy scent. It is pollinated by the Eulaema polychroma bee. Blooms predominantly in the late summer and fall just in time for Thanksgiving.
   Must be grown in open containers such as hanging baskets or mounted, which allows the pendulous flowers to extend downward below the plant.
