Meet Gongora galeata!

Although I had been interested in getting a Gongora, I was under the impression that they were quite large. However, I fell in love with this plant that was in bloom at the greenhouse, and decided to bring it back with me. By the time we arrived home, most of the flowers were finished blooming, and today they are all gone. There is, however, a spike of hope with two buds on it, but they are still very small. It is also in my bathroom. Not sure if it will stay there because I'm sure it needs more light than the Dracula, but it is the most humid place in the house, so it's there for now. Here's a close-up of the flower, which does smell apricot-y!
