I went to Costa Rica for vacation.
I visited the hanging bridges in the forest (San Luis) and walking along a path I saw this orchid. The guide told me that the flower lasted only one day.
The flower reminds me of a cattleya but the leaves are quite different. Any idea of what can it be?

It is beautiful and it is a Sobralia. We saw these beautiful, tall plants in bloom along the highways/ roadways in Ecuador.
Let me look at my trip report and see if I can id it more to the species.

What am I saying? Smiling Australis entered my Sobralias into our data base here. ( amongst others)

It was, Ursula. I went to Cartagena first and then to Costa Rica. Nature is exuberant there. I saw plants, birds. butterflies, monkeys, sloths and iguanas that I cannot see in my country. It is heaven for a Nature lover.
