ORIGIN: Found in Myanmar, Vietnam, lower Thailand, Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo and Sulawesi in forests on limestone in hill forests at elevations of sea level to 1000 meters.

DESCRIPTION: A medium sized, hot to warm growing, terrestrial or occasional lithophytic orchid with subconical bluntly angled, pale greenish grey pseudobulbs carrying broadly lanceolate, acuminate, prominently ribbed underneath, deciduous leaves that narrow basally into a channeled and winged petiole and blooms in the winter on a basal, suberect and then nodding 3' [90 cm] long, 6 to 15 flowered, racemose inflorescence with the peduncle pubescent and the bracts, ovate-lanceolate, and the fragile textured, long-lived flowers all arising before the leaves. This terrestrial species needs a dry winter rest as the leaves yellow and fall off and then, after the plant has bloomed, repot and wait for the new growth to appear to resume watering.

FLOWER SIZE: Up to 2 1/2to 3 inches [6.25 to 7.5 cm] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
