Cockle Orchid
Family: Orchidaceae
Origin: Central America
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterUnusual color

Prosthechea cochleata is an epiphytic, perennial orchid. It is valued for the unusual shape of its flowers, which can resemble an octopus, and is common in cultivation. The flowers are unusual in that they are held the other way up in comparison with the majority of orchids. Instead of being resupinate (twisted so that the lip is borne upside down) the lip is held at the top of the flower (non-resupinate).
