Where does this orchid grow?
In my plant room... :)But really, in northern South America, Venezuela through Peru. Here's a good site:http://www.orchidculture.com/COD/FREE/FS248.html
wow, that is such a stunning orchid! I love its coloring!
Yup, me too. It's my favorite orchid. The flower is big, the foliage is pretty, and it blooms often - this is the second time this summer!
