    Default Anacheilium cochleatum

    I can't keep up with these name changes :roll:
    Epidendrum cochleatum, Encyclia cochleata , and the last time I looked it was
    Prosthechea cochleata. Now it is Anacheilium cochleatum. What ever you call the "cockle shell " orchid is is collection worthy. Mine came as a gift from a member of my local orchid society. One of the members I met at the first meetng invited me to her home. She did not live that far from where I lived. Her and her husband are now friends and I can always rely on her to care for my plants when on vacation. Well, I digress. This plant was a gift from her when I cisited her home for the first time. Lovely fragrance, beautiful chid and I will always treasure it for sentimental reasons.

    Beautiful blooms and very well taken pictures. ( I really hate name changes too especially when it's more than once a year for the same species!)
