Found in Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia from the cool mountains to the hot, lower savannahs it certainly prefers a hot to warm environment with bright light and high humidity. The mostly pendant growing plant has very slender, stem-like, strongly sulcate pseudobulbs carrying a single, terete, acute, sulcate, pendulous, whiplike leaf and blooms in the late spring and early summer on a short racemose inflorescence that is shorter than the leaves with up to 6 flowers that are highly fragrant at night.
