DESCRIPTION: Commonly called the bamboo orchid because of it's thin, tall stem with alternating, lanceolate, acuminate leaves, appears to be bamboo, as a giant sized, hot to cool growing, polypodial, terrestrial orchid occurring at elevations of sea-level to 1200 meters and blooms through out the year on a terminal, 3 1/4 [8 cm] long, simple or branched, scapose, bracteate inflorescence that carries 2 to 6, fragrant, Cattleya-like flowers, one at a time, that are short-lasting yet successive so the bloom time is extended. It has the same cultural requirements as Sobralia. This plant has been enlarging it's distribution from Asia as it has colonized many new habitats, including Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and Guadeloupe. This species can keiki from just below the raceme after flowering.

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