Default Habenaria carnea

I know that this species is common, but it's a first bloom for me and I like it quite a bit. The flowers are not fragrant (as my H. ericmichaelii is) but the flowers are relatively large. The plant is 13 inches tall and each flower is 1 1/4 inches long and 7/8 inches wide.

One of my favorites, but not easy to grow and bloom well. Any tips?

JPMC - it is lovely and not as common as one might think which is surprising considering how beautiful both the flower and foliage is.

It's my first attempt so this could be luck, but I grow it like other Habenarias: moist and warm in the growing season and warm (> 60F) in the winter but keep it bone dry at that time. I grow it in 50% worm castings and 50% perlite. When growing, I fertilize weakly weekly (125-150 ppm of a urea-free fertilizer).

A funny flower - at first look I thought I was in a wrong thread - looked like a pink Zelenkoa! Really lovely, Habenarias are quite seldom over here...

This is just gorgeous. Up until today I never even heard of H. carnea. Is this a species or hybrid??
