Plant blooms from spring to summer with fifteen 7.5 cm wide flowers.


DistributionEdit

Plant is found growing along the Sao Francisco River in SW Bahia and Northern Minas Gerais States of Brazil at elevations of 600 to 800 meters

CultureEdit

Grow in intermediate conditions with partially bright light. Water regularly during growing season and when plants drop leaves during dormancy reduce watering. During dormancy only water about twice a month to keep pseudobulbs from shriveling. Resume watering normally when new growths occur in spring. Plants can die easily from over watering.
