A small intermediate grower found throughout a large portion of South America. I got this from the $7.50 table at Santa Barbara Orchid Estates 13 years ago, it has been in bloom ever since. It has gotten big, then I'd break it up and send pieces away, then the process repeats itself. Always in bloom, 12 month of the year, very willing. Right now it's in the cold GH but it has been in the backyard most of the time since purchase.
