Pod Parent Flower
Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range W (70-90°F). Information I have found states that P. cochlearis likes somewhat warm temperatures, the highs and lows being very consistent throughout all seasons. Another source stated that they like a bit of limestone in the mix (they grow on limestone rocks and such, like P. maculata) as long as you use water 70°F or warmer, along with good, even moisture and good air movement.
Comments: Parent plant: Medium-sized plant. This plant had 6-7 flower spikes, and it looks like the spikes are evergreen and will flower again. These flowers were faintly fragrant.
