    Terrestrial orchid from Ecuador. Intermediate-cool temperatures. Flowers are about 1" tall and it is the largest Ponthieva flower I know of.

    I tried to edit the title on this since I have the name spelled wrong. It is actually P. andicola.

    This is the first spike I've had on this species, but I do grow other ponthievas. I like them all, but this may be the best.
