    A tall stemmed terrestrial from Ecuador, with handsome silver lined leaves ,that unfortunately
    wither during flowering.
    Warm/int. temperatures, and lots of water. IMG_2941.JPG

    I love the positions of the flowers. Quite an amazing species.

    Wow, very nice! How tall is it? Does it have dormancy, or does it make new growth quickly?

    According to the books its not supposed to, but with me it has a short dormancy,
    yellowing and dropping its leaves, to then flower.
