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


Plant blooms in the fall with fifteen to twenty 6.25 cm wide flowers. Flowers are fragrant.


Plant is found growing in the moist tropical forest of Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana and Ecuador at elevations of 70 to 500 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
