    Perhaps the new name is Euchile citrina. Flower is very fragrant and long lasting. A semi-deciduous plant.

    Stunning. One of my favourites. I had one like that going for about twenty years and now it's down to 2 tiny bulbs and no leaves. I had to start again with a new seedling.
    How cold do you let it get?

    Night time temperature is 52-55F in winter, Daytime is around 65F. In summer, temperature should be warmer but not warmer than 80F. Watering is the key but it all depends on your condition including the condition of the mount it grows on. Let it dry out between watering and keep it even Drier in winter. Bright light and good air movement.

    *Drier in winter means 1-2 times light mist per month if your rh is decent.
