    One of the fan-shaped group which includes Huntleya and Pescatoria, etc., which have no pseudobulbs. I grow this one cooler with lower light and good air circulation, kept moist in a plastic pot. I have always been fascinated with this group, which produce unique delightful flowers in a variety of colors and patterns.

    Magnificent! I wish I could grow them!
    How do you keep the leaves healthy and clean? I've seen them in nature , and they never looked good (the leaves that is).

    They are not always perfect, but high humidity helps, I think, and really strong air movement.
