Here is another of the "Jewel Orchids" so named for their foliage. Flowers are not the center of attraction for this group. This is a plant that likes dappled - semi- bright indirect light, and warm temperatures (nights of 65 and up). The plant consists of fleshy, creeping rhizomes. Very important are watering and medium. The medium should be quick draining and should not be allowed to either dry out thoroughly or to remain soggy. We've had some success using "Cactus Mix" for other species and it is said that straight sphagnum moss or a sphagnum moss mix will do.
NOTE: Although our plants are near flowering size, we have not listed them as such since they are usually bought for their foliage.
