Polystacha paniculata

This one is fairly temperature tolerant, but likes to stay damp, and is okay sitting in some water.  As long as it stays damp, even in winter, it will continue to grow.  If it gets too dry for any length of time, it just stops growing until it’s watered again.  Bright indirect light levels, or shady with some direct morning or late afternoon sun are enough to get it to bloom.  It’s a good candidate for “windowsill” growing, and can be treated like a Phragmipedium, if that works as a point of reference for you.
