This beautiful species has grass-like leaves that circle into a spiral at the tips with green-striped, pale yellow pendent flowers in late winter to early spring. The flowers have a powerful scent Cattleya orchids and are superb either in a pot or a sheltered scree.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
