    From Colombia (Putomayo, Valle de Sibundoy, Balsayaco) and Ecuador (Imbabura), 1900-2500m. The flowers are about 5cm wide (25cm tail to tail). I/C grower.

    Great species! Plant looks very healthy as well, my Dracula's often are getting dead leaf tips. i only give weak fertilizer now and then, so I don't know why they have this problem.

    I saw one of these in Colombia last year. It immediately got on my want list, but I have not seen for sale.
