Pod Parent Flower
Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range C (52-70°F)
Comments: Parent plant: This species is difficult to induce to bloom as it requires very cool and bright conditions to grow well and initiate inflorescences. After buds become visible, moving the plant to warmer temperatures seems to ensure that the buds don't blast. Imaged flower is 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) across.

The origin/habitat information below is supplied courtesy of Charles and Margaret Baker

The following information is based on the name of the plant provided by the donor, and assumes that the name is correct. If the plant has been misidentified, then the following information may not be correct.
This text is copyrighted by the Bakers and may not be reproduced without permission.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Mexico in the states of Oaxaca and Guerrero. Williams (1951) reported that these plants are known only from the mountains near the city of Oaxaca. Hágsater (1973), however, reported that this orchid is found in the wild at 8000-9000 ft. (2440-2740 m) near the tops of Pacific-facing ridges in the Sierra Madre del Sur. He reported that this habitat is swept throughout the year by cool, humid winds. He also reported that in the past this orchid was found extensively on the Cerro San Felipe above the city of Oaxaca, but over-collecting has caused its near extinction in that area. A collection from the Cerro Teotepec in the State of Guerrero also has been reported. Hágsater & Salazar (1990) reported that plants are found in evergreen cloudforests at elevations as high as 10,150 ft. (3100 m) but only rarely as low as 7850 ft. (2400 m)
