Lockhartia sp

Lockhartia sp.

No correct ID yet. Possible that it is: Lockhartia oerstedii. This species grows in Central Ameriaca in cloud forests at 500-2500 meters. It should be grown mounted. In the rainforest these plants often grows on tree trunks and branches. My plant is big. The steam´s are almost 80cm! It flowers one or two times a year.

I grow it in my cool vivaria but I suspect that it should grow in a little bit warmer environment. But it flowers and I am happy with that!
