Bifrenaria tyrianthina

Found growing in granite rock clefts in the neighboring state of Minas Gerais with little shade and virtually no rain for 5 months. This is one of my oldest plants. I reckon it is about 20 years old. I have had it for 5. I treat it a little more kindly, but not much. You can see how shrivelled the pseudobulbs are.

Lovely blooms, but with such a short stem.
How big is the bloom?
When taking photos, I always want to do it with a ruler beside them , as size can be so deceiving.

RE: Bifrenaria tyrianthina

I don't like pics with rulers though I agree they can give some idea of size. Bifrenarias are very similar in size and botanically to Lycastes so this will give you an idea. Most are short-stemmed but a few of the smaller flowered varieties like aureo-fulva have longer stems.

RE: Bifrenaria tyrianthina

Beautiful blooms. I don't like rulers either. A forumite on another forum does two pics one with , one without. I'd never have the time, can't manage the time to take/post pictures. Are the blooms fragrant?
