Ive been growing this species since 1979 (not the same plant as my original succumbed to virus and was replaced a few years ago) and it still remains my favourite orchid, even though the flowers dont last so long: Rossioglossum grande

It is certainly a spectacular looking flower, both in shape and colouring.

Very attractive. Wish I could grow odonts. I've eventually killed every one I ever had.

Rossioglossum is much more tolerant of low humidity and high temperatures than Odontoglossum, so you might be more successful with one
