Anacheilium cochleatum

Description

Synonyms: Encyclia cochleata, Prosthechea cochleata

Commonly known as the black orchid or the cockleshell orchid, around our nursery it is affectionately referred to as the octopus orchid. It is also the national flower of Belize. This is a very nice outcross of 2 great, large flowered parents. One has wide sepals and the other plant has nice long twisted sepals. Both have great color and are above average size. Anacheilium cochleatum randomly produces flower spikes year round, mostly spring-fall. 5-20+ flowers develop sequentially over a long period of time. Easy to grow and a prolific flowerer, it loves to be treated just like a Cattleya.

Care: Intermediate-warm temperatures, bright indirect sunlight and regular year round watering and light feeding.
