Beautiful species... native of Ecuador, too. Two distinct forms of this plant- the large one already mentioned (and this is a huge plant)... and a distinctly smaller form which gets only 12" tall, or maybe a bit taller. Two forms have identical flowers, but otherwise could be unrelated plants. This plant is not an obligate epiphyte and can be found growing on the ground in soil
