This tropical slipper is easy to grow and bloom. The flowers have some greenish yellow on the petals with reddish sprinkles near the labellum (the slipper part). The labellum itself has a light pink blush. The leaves are a medium green and it is a tidy plant.
Each growth blooms only once with the flower arising from the center of the leaves. New plants are produced from the base of the old plant. A pot can become quite full of foliage and produce many flowers.
