Description

With a classic 'corsage' orchid shape, this cultivar presents lavender petals that surround the darker lower lip with a dark yellow spot to guide he pollinating insects to the pollen sacks. With bright sunlight, high humidity, a modest rest period, and well-drained media, this plant will slowly increase in size and the number of flowers it produces annually. It is better off under lights rather than a windowsill in home environments due to the cooler temperatures next to the glass in winter.
