    skinneri is the national flower of Costa Rica. It's a common orchid in Central America. It is recommended because of it's ability to withstand many growing conditions. It is the parent to a natural occuring cross which produced c. guatamalensis. I don't know when it was 'discovered'.

    It should have high light, warm temperatures; regular, light feeding. Allow media to dry before watering again. Since it is a native of the rain forests, it does not have a dry period like some species.

    Hope this helps.
