Author
Rchb.f.
Year
1865
ORIGIN: Found in the Philippines at elevations below 100 meters.

DESCRIPTION: This small to medium sized, hot growing, epiphytic species has an erect or ascending stem enveloped by imbricating leaf sheaths and carrying elliptic, obovate to oblong-elliptic, fleshy, acute or obtuse leaves and likes a hot environment with plenty of water year round and low levels of light. This species has 3 to 5, fragrant, longlasting, fleshy, waxy flowers and blooms in the spring through summer on a suberect, arcuate to pendant, to 12 [30 cm] long, thick, succulent, racemose or paniculate, many flowered inflorescence that is much longer than the leaves covered with small distichous, ovate-triangular bracts and does well in a pot and has a habit of making keikis so it is best to leave green viable inflorescence alone so they will bloom again..

FLOWER SIZE: Mostly less than 2 inches [5 to 6 cm] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
