This is an epiphitic orchid from South America. It has ovate, somewhat flat pseudobulbs bearing 4 leaves each, 2 on the base and 2 on the top. The inflorescences comes from the axils of the lower leaves, growing up to 50cm long or more. The flowers are small, yellow with golden and brown spots and stripes, with a relatively big yellow labellum. When the wind blows the flowers looks like dancers in yellow dresses, very nice.

It vegetates on roughly barked trees, and wonīt mind having direct sunlight. Donīt worry too much about watering, just let it dry during 2 or 3 months, watering maybe 2 or 3 times in that period to stimulates it to bloom.
