Daniela,
thanks for a very interesting article. I think you chose a wonderful and fascinating path in life!
This article caught my attention immediately for a very good reason - I am growing a mounted Prosthechea citrina since about 2004 and I have yet to bloom this Orchid. The latest growth finally has that look that tells me it might be ready to bloom this, or at the latest, next year. I would love to observe this Orchid in its native habitat, so your description and excellent pictures are very helpful.
Much appreciated,
Ursula

Fascinating! Great article that I especially enjoyed because I live in Mexico, in Mérida, and have a few native orchids. I hope you continue to write articles about what you find and how they grow in the wild.

Great article! Though I'm sure it's a hybrid, gave me second thoughts about the Onc. I recently bought at a show. The lady couldn't give me a name for the plant. Definately something to watch out for.
