    Also called Epicrianthes flavofimbriatum, this pendulous species is found in Borneo in moist forests which has small pseudobulbs with a single, thick ovate leaf. A single bloom forms at the base of the pseudobulb, almost inside of the sheath surrounding it and is fairly small compared to the plant itself. The yellow appendages on the lip are characteristic of most Epicrianthes species and serve to attract and entice pollinators.

    Nice! I bought one earlier this year, but it lost all its leaves. It currently pushes one new growth, so there is hope! Guess it is going to take a while until it looks like yours.
