This is a reddish leaved form of the species that we found in Caripe, Venezuela back in 1999. A large growing form with an upright vase shape and a full inflorescence that has a pink rachis, and branches and blue flowers. We found this growing epiphytically in a wet forest at about 3,000 feet of altitude. Here it grows as the typical form and has no cultural problems.
