DESCRIPTION: Found in Vietnam at elevations around 1500 meters, where it can be encountered on trees, in the ground or on rocks, and is a very forgiving plant that can be grown many ways. This species has narrow-ovoid, bilaterally flattened pseudobulbs with 2 to 3, scarious with age cataphylls and carries, 6 to 8, thin, narrowly linear-obovate, arched, unequally apiculate apice leaves. It is part of the SECTION Annamaea and so is best grown cool and will bloom in the late summer and fall on a basal, erect or arching, 2' [60 cm] long, racemose scape with basal sheaths and 4 to 10, long-lasting, non-fragrant flowers.

FLOWER SIZE: 2.4 inches [6 cm] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
