I think that is Haemaria discolor and not Anoectochilus chapaensis.

Boy, you're right. I got it as a shoot from a guy in New jersey about 10 years ago. He called it "poor man's orchid".

That is a Great Shot of Ludisia discolor...I have several orchids, representing several types/methods of growing and this plant's simplicity and beauty is great! Oh, it used to be considered Haemeria discolor...so really both ID's are used.
