|This epiphytic orchid is uncommon in the Brisbane area. It is is
common further west in dry open forests, but a few plants grow on the
dryer western slopes of Brisbane forest park.
This orchid is easily identified by its distinctive curved rigid channelled
leaves which grow to 50cm. Plants are typically conspicuous growing
into large clumps in broken branches and tree hollows.
The flower stems grow to 60cm with up to 60 flowers about 30mm across.
Flowers are extremely variable in colour, but are usually yellowish green
with brown splotching.
This distinctive orchid with its rigid curved leaves can not be
confused with any other orchid.
