Eria convallarioides

This one is from Kawamoto.  I don’t remember whether I got it last Spring or about a year ago.  Don’t know much about it, other than it has foot-long leaves that look like they want a lot of light, but could burn in too much direct sun.  I left it indoors over the summer, hanging right in front of the patio door.  Sure enough, it got enough light there.  It seems to be not too picky about water.  I watered it maybe once every week or two, even over the summer, and it put on plenty of new growth.  Now, it’s beginning to bloom, with four spikes altogether.  Two are starting to open flowers, and two are still at the budded emerging spike stage.  Not bad, considering the care I gave it was mostly based on guesswork.
