Mormodes skinneri is a species of Mormodes found in South America.


Plant blooms in late spring to summer with many 6 cm fragrant flowers.


Plant is found growing in Costa Rica at elevations of 500 to 1500 meters


Grow in intermediate to 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.
