Comments: This orchid is grown primarily for its attractive, velvety, variegated foliage although it does produce clusters of small white flowers in late winter to early spring. Flowers last for a long time. Relatively easy to grow. Tolerates shaded conditions quite well, consequently can be grown indoors. Easily propagated by cuttings.
