|An epiphytic or lithophytic orchid. One folded, conical leaf (to 5 1/2 inches long). The pseudobulbs can be conical, ovoid or pear-shaped. Flowers in spring. Indoors, use epiphytic orchid potting mix in shallow pans, with bright, filtered light in summer, full light in winter. Requires moderate humidity and misting in summer, and a short rest period in winter (reducing temperature to 32 to 35 degrees Farenheit). Repot annually, before flowering. Outdoors, plant midspring in a sheltered site, partially shaded, with humus-rich soil that is well-drained.
