This is a Puertorrican native orchid. It grows at the sides of the roads in the island.

What a pretty flower - thank you for sharing the picture with us! It must be quite a treat seeing these grow in the wild

Very interesting - it's cool to see species from genera that we typically only see one species commonly grown.
