This miniature beauty from the Blue Mountains of Jamaica was described by Rudolph Schlechter although it had previously appeared as Laelia and Epidendrum. Ideal for the small greenhouse in cool conditions, it is space-saving and colourful. The plant is compact with single, leathery leaves which have a reddish tinge in bright light. The flowers are a stunning scarlet-orange and up to 5 cm. wide and with a purple anther cap. It can be grown in pots or mounted on twigs as it tends to grow in nature.
