    The flowers remind me of those of some Maxillaria or Lycaste. Wonder if it is a close relative?

    Looks familiar. I wonder if it is related to Bifrenia. Very pretty blooms.

    What media do you have it potted in and what temperatures do you grow it under please? I just got a plant through quarantine and am trying to work out where to house it in my collection.

    Hi Brett
    This species do love sphagnum moss, you can use basket with moss is more than enough as the plant will multiply very fast and the temperature in my area day time up to 36 C and night time the lowest is 24 degree C I live near Equator, hope will give some idea and keep it the most bright that you can.Looking forward your plant .
