Clowesia russelliana is a species of Clowesia found in South America.


Plant blooms from summer to fall with fifteen to twenty 6.25 cm wide flowers. Flowers are fragrant.


Plant is found growing in the dry open forest of Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama and Venezuela at elevations of 600 to 1000 meters.


Grow in warm 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. Plants are usually grown in bark with perlite, cork, full sphagnum moss, and tree fern
