The Embreea genus has only one species and it is found in Colombia and Ecuador. These epiphytes grow in very wet cloud forests. A four-angled pseudo bulb with a single leaf characterizes this genus. The bloom of this genus resembles that of the Stanhopea. It is has a long pendulous, single-flowered inflorescence. The Embreea need intermediate conditions with abundant water year-round. They grow best in hanging baskets that allow the pendulous inflorescence to emerge through the bottom of the basket. The pseudo bulbs of this species are about 3 inches tall and are densely clustered with a single leaf up to about 18 inches long and 6 inches broad. The flower is about 5 1/2 inches across. Flowering is from summer to autumn.
