This species is found in Papua New Guinea at elevations of 350-700m.

The short erect spikes carry 2 to 10 nodding very long-lasting (4-5 months) creamy
 greenish white colored 2" blooms marked with violet spots.

I grow my plant  in a small clay pot in a mix of fir bark and sphagnum moss.

This is a warm to intermediate growing species.
