Polystachya pubescens

- picked up in January 2006 from Cal-Orchids at the Silva Orchids open house.
The spikes emerge from the new growths before they mature.
The flowers have a nice fresh citrussy scent in the morning sun and last a long time.

I had split and cleaned up the huge plant last year. I am happy - the two baskets didn't miss a beat. I love the double show this year!
