Large thin leaves may become decidious if the plant is underwatered. Grows well in osmunda and long fiber sphagnum moss. It needs even moisture, humidity, light shade and temperatures between 60F to 80F. Well grown plants mature 2 to 3 large pseudobulbs per year. Flower stalk is very long and haings down under the plant. The blooms have a heavy, sweet smell with spicy overtones. This Orchid is distantly related to Cymbidiums. Wild Gongoras are essential to the production of Brazil nuts.
