    An intermediate to warm growing species from northeastern Thailand, where it grows at altitudes from 250 up to 1000 meters. I grow mine in the intermediate growing room in a mixture of bark and crushed lava, medium light and evenly moist. I bought it in bud at a show back in May so I can't take credit for the flower, but it is lovely none the less. :)
