very attractive pendant-growing vandaceous plant, long hanging linear v-channeled grey-green 10" leaves on a short rhizome, 5" spikes emerge from between the leaves carrying up to 20 pretty 1/2" blooms, rounded sepals and petals are cream traversed basally with a red band, sack-shaped lip is white with lavender marks, one of the most powerful orchid fragrances and fortunately very pleasant.
