    This is a cross of Paraphalaenopsis serpentilingua and Neofinetia falcata. It's the second bloom for both my plants, but most of the flowers belong to the larger plant. It's very strongly scented (like Neofinetia).

    Thanks! I keep them in a small vase and spray the roots once a day. Usually quite some water accumulates in the vase but that's no problem. They get a lot of light (in a window facing South), the leaves are reddish on the side facing the window.

    It's rather warm, in winter between 18-21°C, in summer 20-30°C. I have a pot of Paraphalaenopsis serpentilingua right next to the Parafinetia and the species is also happy under these conditions.

    Thank you for that information. Sadly, that is much warmer than I can provide.
