    Has anyone here grown or grow this species. If so how are you growing it. It's a very interesting plant and I would love to keep it alive. It's said to like shade and warm temperatures but I don't see much else.

    I notice one of the pictures for it on iospe was provided by Linda; maybe she'll chime in.

    Wild Orchids of Thailand says it's from "North, Lower Northeast, EAst, South" of Thailand. And that it blooms in February. Perhaps the widespread nature of it (in Thailand, at least,) indicates it's adaptable. The book has a color plate, but it's not good. Says "white flower, greenish at base of lip, operculum (huh?) yellow. 0.3 cm in size, 7-8 flowers at a time.

    If you ever get tired of it, you have my address... (Looks VERY cool.)
