Has been observed growing epiphytically in the wild.

Tube: Long, lilac with purple veins.

Sepals: Lilac to pale lilac at tips.

Corolla: None, but has spectacular stamen with purple filaments and bright orange anthers.

Foliage: Narrowish dark green leaves which can be quite large - between 2" & 4".

Section: Hemsleyella.
