This beautiful plant is called "jewel orchid" because of the dark green leaves crisscrossed with red lateral lines, that makes them quite appealing even when not in bloom. This species is a terrestrial or lithophytic plant occurring in evergreen, lowland forests in shady, humid habitats with rocky substrates along streams and rivers without pseudo-bulbs, the fleshy red stems twisted, erect or pendulous are 8 to 10" long and have stalked elliptic-lanceolate 2 to 3" leaves and a terminal cylindrical fairly dense 4 to 12" long inflorescence that has small asymmetrical, fragrant flowers that last 2 to 3 weeks. They can be potted with 1/2 potting soil and 1/2 tree bark, given deep shade and humid well watered conditions year round. If the leaves lose the dark green and a lot of pale red is visible they are getting too much light.
