Default C. chocoensis

C. chocoensis is seldom grown here. I got this plant several years ago. It blooms in winter regularly.

That is a beautiful flower. The color and form is very interesting. The inner lip coloring too.

Mine has been open for about a week, but not nearly as wide as yours. But, oh the smell, just luscious.

I also have two more sheaths, so I should be good for the next month... lol

btw pheli, I see you are using the secondary name to the quadricolor. Here is an article about its nomenclature...

Thanks. It came with the tag written the name.
So I adopted it and did not change it to the name, C. quadricolor.
It is a charming species, but seldom sold here in my area.
