Butterfly Orchid

Psychopsis papilio has very large and spectacular flowers with antenna-like sepals and petals.

The inflorescences are erect or curved and flat in the upper part where many flowers are formed in succession over a period of several months. The inflorescence continues to grow and form new buds, often over a period of several years.
