    Wow, what a standout! Lovely color. I don't think I've ever seen one of these before.

    Maybe you've seen it under the old name Epigeneium lyonii?

    Beautiful blooms, I see what you mean the plant is a little on the scruffy side but with your tender loving care you will have it at its prime in no time at all, I have never heard of this type of orchid let alone seen one, It really is lovely, thank you for sharing it with us.

    Carrie, I have always wanted to grow this species, from the mountains of north-central Luzon island. Incidentally, they are also found in Borneo.

    They are notoriously hard to grow in the lowlands, and require some elevation (coolness). I hope they can make do with 400 meters above sea level.

    I really hope that this plant does really well for you and thanks for the info on where it is found, lets hope that it stays coolish for you so that it grows well.
