    Hi All

    It is a terrestrial orchid with purple to pink flowers
    I got a semi shade receives a bit of sunshine in the morning.

    Has flourished twice a year.
    You are now in bloom since november, three months now.











    They have already capsules with seed. That seem in a hurry

    Oh wow, that is so beautiful. At first I thought the bloom color was blue. I see the purple color in the other photos. It has such a great shape.

    Cheers,

    Hi Bruce

    At the beginning ... the flowers were blue, it took well over a month. I thought it was because I changed my substrate a more acidic.
    (As the hydrangeas that are blue ) Over time the flowers have turned purple.

    Muchas gracias
