    hmm... if it's a terrestrial orchid, then I would have to agree with Roy and say Calanthe.. and specifically hennisii.

    It's close cousin does well in South Florida. The sprays hang down and puts on a show once a year.

    Cimbiums are very temprate also.
    They will only flower in the right climate.
    Before buying, know the climate or you'll have leaves only.
