    This little caribbean epiphyte is blooming late this year, usually blooming in the spring, but three inflorescences for the first time. Unfortunately my conditions have been less than ideal this summer so the flowers are all slightly misshapen. But I still like the bright orange flowers. The entire mount is barely 6" tall. I grow it cooler with a heavy misting daily in medium light levels.

    Its sister species, Neocogniauxia hexaptera, bloomed for me the first time this past spring.

    Early August is the usual time for mine, but I do have notes on pollination as early as June and as late as October. They are welcome any time.

    Fantastic color! Though that is a genus name I would not be in a hurry to say out loud at an orchid meeting...
