    Description: Discovered in the Philippines in 1921.

    - Winter: 50-80f

    Light: Medium light

    Humidity: 60-80%

    Air circulation: Slight breeze

    Growing location: Greenhouse

    Growing medium: Mount - Cork

    Growing medium notes:

    - Frequency: Daily
    - Fertilizer & frequency: Daily with MSU at 1/4 recommended strength
    - Dry rest: No.

    Blooming season: Spring, Summer, Fall

    Flower size: Small flower. Sepals are less than 1cm each. Spike is wirey and about 6-8cm long.

    Plant size: Small clumping plant. Pseudobulbs are 1.5cm tall with leaves of 6cm. It's a light rambler. It doesn't clump, but it also doesn't cover a mount quickly.

    Other firsthand observations: Flowers smell pretty bad for being so small. I would say the smell is like condensed dirty sock smell.
