Grammatophyllums are large orchids that put out amazing displays of very long spikes covered with many ‘leopard’ flowers.

Grammatophyllum martae is no exception. The mahogany flowers are long-lasting, but with fuller markings that cover almost all of the petals.

I keep telling myself I need to grow more grammas. Their large size and flower displays always elicit a ‘wow’ from anybody who sees them. I can always live with a bit of drama.
