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.

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.
