    Description: Described in 1912 by Schlechter, it comes from North Queensland.


    - Summer: 60-90f
    - Winter: 50-80f

    Light: Medium light

    Humidity: 60-80%

    Air circulation: Breeze

    Growing location: Greenhouse

    Growing medium: Mount - Cork

    Growing medium notes: I tried growing it in a pot with sphag, but it didn't do well in my conditions. I tend to water a lot.

    - Frequency: Daily
    - Fertilizer & frequency: 1/4 strength MSU at every watering
    - Dry rest: No.

    Blooming season: Winter, Fall

    Flower size: Flower is approx 1/2" laterally. It's a top a 1/4-1/2" spike.

    Plant size: 1" leaves are at the end of each 3" growth.

    Other firsthand observations: The plant really didn't like being potted in my GH. The Cork mount with a sphag pad seems to be ideal for me.

    Other plants growing well nearby:
    Ophidion spp
    Monosepalum dischorense
    Platystele ovatilabia
    Pleurothallis anfracta
    Dendrobium prenticei
