Zygopetalum ? ? ?

Does this look like a Zygopetalum ? My friend just picked it up at Trader Joe's and of course, no tag. I looked at some pictures on line and this was my best guess . What kind of care will it need ?

Yes, it's a very nice zygo. It likes water and fertilizer. In summer, they don't like to get totally dry - I water them two or three times a week. In winter, on the other hand, it needs to dry completely between watering.
When new bulbs are growing, be very careful with them, they rot easily.
