This orchid has spidery-shaped flowers that feature green petals heavily barred in black surrounding the yellow lip with an intricate red pattern. This complex hybrid allows homeowners to grow spider flower-shaped orchids whose parents require cool moist humid environments year round. Other species in the ancestry allow this cultivar to grow in bright light, relatively high humidity with good air movement, and exceptionally well- drained potting media. X Banfieldara is a hybrid cross between Ada, Brassia, and Odontoglossum, which all originated in South America.
