A warm growing epiphyte/lithophyte from Mexico down though Tropical Americas. It has a pleasant faint citrus scent primarily at night. I do not grow this species for the fragrance however. I adore the shape and texture of the flowers, definitely a little alien... and the monochromatic color scheme works for me too. I grow it mounted on cork in the intermediate/warm vivarium where it receives ample water when in active growth but is kept only slightly drier in the winter. I requires high humidity and a lot of light, I grow it as close to the lights as I can to the point of the leaves turning a little red/purple as a result. A few more photos on the blog.
