It grows epiphytically on trees at 900-1500 meters above sea level in open mountainous forests in intermediate to warm temperatures. Characterized by slender pseudobulbs and narrow, leathery leaves, each pseudobulb produces a remarkable bloom with a unique light pistachio creamy colour and a red marking inside the lip.
Care involves well-draining media, humidity, and filtered light to mimic its natural environment.
