Almost hardy orchid with very large flowers

An almost-hardy orchid, with flowers almost as big as the whole plant. Some species are frost tender; this one takes at least 25F in excellent draining soil. In colder regions it can be wintered over on a cool, bright windowsill. Pleiones start making new roots right when they are blooming season and should be watered little October until right after bloom.
