Cycnoches peruvianum is a species of Cycnoches found in South America.
Plant blooms from spring to summer with 6.5 cm wide flowers. Flowers are fragrant.
Plant is found growing in the cloud forest of Ecuador and Peru at elevations of 450 to 900 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. Female flowers will often be produced when high light and low moisture is present. While male flowers are produced in shadier situation of higher moisture.
