Gomesa radicans [Ornithophora]

This grasslike orchid hails from Brazil, where it lives at elevations around 400m.  The pseudobulbs are narrow and like to grow in open air.  It much prefers to be loosely mounted, and without moss, ideally hanging off a branch or treefern pole in high humidity.  It is not particularly tolerant of drying out, so should likely be for terrarium culture only.
