This is a small warm to cool-growing member of this large class of orchids which is found in the Himalayas, Assam, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan, Myanmar, and Vietnam where it grows at elevations of 1000 to 2600 meters.

It is an easy to grow miniature which blooms from summer to fall on an inflorescence which carries between 6 to 8 inch long flowers in a loose umbel above the foliage. Well grown plants can be very floriferous and give quite a display.

Like all bulbophyllums, these plants like to be kept moist and need light and good air circulation to bloom well. This genus grows very well in Florida and is frequently seen at society meetings and shows.
