    actually, not part of the Catt alliance...closer to the Maxillaria alliance, most closely related to the extremely picky Telipogon.

    I really like those flowers!

    My first thought was "spider" but it's definitely different. I haven't seen anything quite like that.

    I've got a Trichoceros sp. which is not as happy as it could be. I had read they were terrestrial, but I can't pot mine, because the pbs are spaced too widely. So it's mounted, which apparently is not ideal.

    How are you growing yours? For that matter, where did you pick it up?
