    I finally looked it up, here is what I found .
    Found in Thailand, Borneo, Sumatra, Malaysia and New Guinea in heath, lowland, and hill forests at elevations of sea-level to 1000 meters as a medium sized, hot to cool growing epiphyte with conical, olive, purple pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, erect, lanceolate, acute, plicate, shiney greenish purple above, bright red purple beneath, narrowing basally into the petiolate base leaf that blooms in the winter and spring on an erect, 28" [to 70 cm] long,pubescent, successively single, to 20 flowered indflorescence with lanceolate, acuminate floral bracts.
    Guess it was about time I bought it several years ago was un named at the time .

    Hi Andrea , It is in spagh. moss , does not like direct sun at all or a lot of fertilizer I mix it half strength or less , the pot is just big enough to hold the roots . Less water but not bone dry when it is not doing anything , moist the rest of the time . Do you have a picture of yours ? Gin

    Thank you ,Gin ,for the information

    I repot it in sphagnum tomorrow. Now it is in cocos and bark .
    Here is a picture of mine



    One shoot is withered and I´ve cut it .

    This is my first from this species and I have two Eulophias.
    But they dont growing and flowering ,too.

    I think terrestrial orchids are nothing for me
