An extra nice species from Oaxaca, Mexico where it grows as an epiphyte in deciduous forests on the western slopes of the Sierra Madre. A large grower to over 12 inches across with half inch wide gracefully arching, reddish leaves in an open rosette shape. At anthesis it blushes overall crimson. The inflorescence is a capitate head of tight branches on a scape about 4 inches tall with long, leaf-like bracts. In bloom it produces many purple flowers.
