Cochleanthes Amazing

I’ve had this one for a few years, and never could figure out whether it had a bloom schedule, other than when it’s good and ready.  Orchids Wiki says it’s supposed to bloom in late Winter to early Spring, but mine never does.  It just now finished blooming in November.  It’s a primary hybrid of amazonica and flabelliformis.  Basic conditions are intermediate for both light and temperature, but it’s not that picky other than liking to actually sit in a saucer of water, like, say, a Phragmipedium.  Some people claim it has a nice fragrance, but I’ve never noticed much from mine, unless I’m sniffing it at the wrong time of day.
