Synonym: Coelogynae maculate Lindl.
Origin: Burma, northern India from Sikkim to Assam, Thailand.
Description: Medium small plant. The pseudobulbs are almost conical, close together on the rhizome, rugose, spotted brown, about 1 in (3 cm) tall, with two apical leaves, elliptic-lanceolate, deciduous, membranous, about 8 in (20 cm) long and about 1 in (3 cm) wide. The basal, single-flowered inflorescence sprouts from pseudobulbs that have lost their leaves. The flowers are delicate, of variable color, (but basically white and purple) and measure about 2½ in (6 cm) in diameter. The orchid flowers in autumn.
Cultivation: This species, like others belonging to the same genus, should be grown in small pots. The ideal growing medium is a mixture of equal parts of sphagnum, osmunda fiber and finely chopped bark. During the growth period the plants need abundant watering and temperatures equivalent to those of the temperate greenhouse after leaf drop a rest period at a lower temperature is necessary until the flower stems appear. Repotting should be done every year before flowering.
