An unusual ground orchid because of it's thick, jointed pseudobulbs topped by tough grey-green leaves. It is often found growing amongst other succulent species such as Aloe and Euphorbia in it's native habitat that includes the southern part of the Arabian peninsula and the drier parts of eastern Africa down into South Africa.

The flower spike emerges from the base of the pseudobulb and has pink and green flowers often reaching 90-120cm. (3-4ft.)
