ORIGIN: Found in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais on iron ore hills as a small to medium sized, "rupicolous" lithophyte, encountered under dense scrub bushes on cliff ledges at an elevation of 400-1200 meters.

DESCRIPTION: With terete, cylindrical pseudobulbs with a stout basal sheath and carrying a single, apical, erect, leathery, narrowly oblong, obtuse leaf. Well drained pots in a cool to warm environment and bright indirect light combined with a dry winter rest will make this an easy late winter and early spring blooming species with a 8 to 20" [20 to 50 cm] long raceme subtended by a compressed sheath and having from 2 to 10 flowers once established.

FLOWER SIZE: 1 1/2 to 1 13/4 inch [4 to 5 cm] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
