This is a wonderful orchid - I wonder if it is a temperate species ?

Supposedly warm to cool. I only have it for about 1 year, but it has already survived last summer (which wasn't very hot, really). I keep it (and other Pleurothallidinae from the same temp range) on a plastic cup with a little water on the bottom, so it's always reasonably wet - less in winter, naturally.
Wonderfully weird flower, and huge for the size of the plant. It really deserves a try!
