If you like flowers that make a statement then this striking species is for you.

Native to Mexico and Central America it’s found in forests growing on large tree branches. The bright, long-lasting flowers are produced in the summer on an 15” inflorescence.

An easily grown species, it needs strong bright light and can be grown mounted or potted, and since it has pseudobulbs, it needs to dry out between watering. Fertilize only in active growth.
