Stanhopea Quirky Queen is one of the most unusual stanhopea hybrids in cultivation. The peloric clone pictured here is 'Shooting Star' and it is notable for its three lips (but only a single column). It was recently awarded in California.
Basket culture is recommended, as with most stanhopeas, due to the pendant inflorescences.
Images at left and right were provided by the hybridizer, Doug Pulley, MD, of California. You can visit his website, The Doug Pulley, M.D. Collection
