Papilionanthe hookeriana [Rchb. f.]Schlechter 1915, the pollen parent of the hybrid Papilionanthe 'Miss Joachim'

This orchid is one of the parents of the ubiquitous hybrid, Papilionanthe Miss Joachim.  In the original cross, it has been determined that the pod parent was Papilionanthe teres var. andersonii.  This plant should be easy to cultivate in Puerto Rico except maybe for the dry southern coast.  However it is very rare in cultivation in the island.
