There has been a lot of hybridization of Zygos in the last 10 years - this is almost certainly one of them. Some of the other species they have been crossed with are Pescatoria, Colax, Warrea, Batemannia, Chaubardia and Pabstia. Sometimes more than one. Impossible to tell. Why don't you do a bit of detective work by going back to the person you got it from and work back to the person who made the cross? You may not get anywhere but with such a nice plant it would be worth the effort.

Thank you for the suggestion , I might just do it . You could be right , it could have been a cross of Zygos and one of these species mentioned . It has a fragrance reminiscent of that of Zygos but not as strong and I really like it .

OMG, I bought one of these at my local Trader Joe store. The tag says Zygonisia Cynosure 'Blue Bird'. I thought the color of this plant was absolutely amazing!
