Dracula gorgona

A cool growing Dracula only found in 3 states of Columbia. It comes in several expressions. I have 3 different ones which I will post when they bloom. Then there is a pure yellow one (Dracula gorgona xanthia 'Colombo' FCC/AOS) which represents a mutation. One plant only existed of this type. It was divided in 2 by the owner, the gift plant survived and earned an FCC. The original one died. All current plants are divisions of the as it won't breed. Any attempt to propagate resulted in no-yellow plants. I have it but it is a year from blooming. They sell for it anywhere from $100 to $850. I got it in trade.

Wow! What an ancestry.
Looks menacing to me.
I can see, you do have a "few" plants in the background.

Well the yellow one died. Bummer! The other one keeps blooming faithfully.
