Another Cockleshell

This is my Prosthechea cochleata. The flowers are much, much larger than the ones on my Encyclia Green Hornet. Of course there are also fewer flowers.
Both are pretty easy in my book.

An undervalued orchid in my opinion. Another one of those easy orchids that i have trouble growing.
That looks to be a better than average clone.

I agree that this orchid is generally undervalued.

This one is particularly nice. Its full tag reads Encyclia cochleata 'Hihimanu' AM/AOS x cochleata 'Spy Hill' AM/AOS.
