Chondorhyncha andreetiae

Chondorhynchas can be grown with Cochleanthes and related orchids — fairly wet and semi-shady.  They will get accordion leaves if left too dry for too long.  The blooms emerge from the base of the pseudobulb, if you can call it that, since they don’t really have pseudobulbs.  A “spike” will emerge from the base of a leaf at the level of whatever medium you’re using with a single flower.  Mine has one flower open, and another bud getting ready to open.  The leaves are mostly lime green, and a bit yellowy because of the light levels it’s received, but it’s perfectly healthy.  The flowers are unscented, but are frilly and cute.
