Probably the most colorful angraecoid orchid, and also one of the smallest. It is very slow growing; about 1.5 leaves a year. Spikes take about 9 months to develop—they initiate in late winter/early spring and bloom around Christmastime. Flowers are close to 1/2". I wouldn't consider this a very difficult species, but the fact that it's so small and slow growing means that any major setback will probably be the end of that plant. I grew one of these for years in the past. It would put out about two dozen flowers at a time. One day I saw a yellow leaf on it and found basal rot. Dead a few days later. Medium light, drying out between waterings, intermediate temps.
