    Default Dracula hirtzii

    From the cloud forests of Ecuador, 1600-2100m.

    This species is best grown 12-22ºC. High humidity (RH above 80%) and excellent air movement is a must. The flowers are 22cm tail to tail. Plant size 20-25cm.

    Would have loved to see a closeup of the unopened bud in the first picture. Great photos and very pretty plant.
