As far as i know, its not engineered... i also uploaded a pic of O.simia, the monkey orchid... looks pretty much the same, but more monkey-like, hands and feet curled up... hehe...

That's funny! It's a beautiful flower...if you don't stare too hard at it! Do you know if it's wild? Or did man engineer it? I love the colors!
