    Really cool orchid! When was it discovered? Do you have the history? I love to learn about these plants.

    I know that the man it was named for is a retired priest. He worked with children here in Ecuador, and was a passionate orchid hobbyist. He would share plants with wealthy collectors who contributed to his various social programs. From all accounts, a great man.
