Baptistonia echinata

Baptistonia echinata - Flower photo by Richard LindbergBaptistonia echinata - Plant photo by Richard LindbergBaptistonia echinata has been down in just about the darkest spot in the greenhouse, surrounded by shading plants. Still it bloomed and the pseudobulb that developed last year is larger than the one before it. Those two things together tell me that the plant is happy.

Baptistonia echinata grows in Brazil in low mountain rainforests. It is cool to hot growing with water all year. This is a genus with only the one species, at least for a day or two.
