Cochleanthes Amazing

This plant is a primary hybrid of amazonica and flabelliformis.  Supposedly, it blooms from late winter to early spring.  Mine’s blooming right now, in late summer.  It likes medium light, and really does prefer to sit in water.  If I neglect to top off the water for more than a few days, any new growth gets “accordioned,” some of which you can see in the pictures.  This one blooms pretty reliably for me.  The flower has a very pleasant smell, but isn’t strong enough to fill the air more than a foot or so around it.
