When I bought this orchid I had no idea of how the flower will look like. The plant stays small, produce few leaves but the flowers are always very spectacular. When closed, they have 3 faces that look like a Y. When open it gives a very nice orange flower with yellow border with a size close to peny size.
This plant was describe first in 1996 (certainly not found before because growing in a region controlled by Colombia’s drug lords)
Culture condition: Hot, full shade (but I culture it in a buble, full East window.
Origine: Colombia in the state of Risaralda at elevations of 500 meters
Substrat change: move into a buble just after I bought it.
Blooming: January 2013
Purchase: Feb 2012. Orquideas del valle.
