Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Temperature range I (60-83°F). I hang this plant above my vandas so it gets some full South Carolina sun and high humidity but not the watering the vandas get. It will grow well in cattleya light but I doubt it will flower well.
 
Comments: Parent plant: Plant is the offspring of 'Laura' x 'Mrs Chase'. Medium-sized plant.

ORIGIN/HABITAT: Plants are found in the southeastern Mexican states of Yucatan and Quintana Roo with distribution extending through the Caribbean-facing lowlands of Belize into Honduras. They grow on stunted trees in hot, humid lowlands near sea level. There have been some reports of occurrences in Nicaragua and Guatemala, but we have been unable to locate any details relating to collections or habitat location in these areas.
