Hay-scented orchid is an epiphyte* which grows in highland of the altitude of 700 to 2300m in Philippines and Borneo.
The spindle-shaped pseudobulb** expands one long oblanceolate leaf.
From Winter to Spring, it extends a long flower stem from its tip and forms a raceme***.
The raceme extends in the shape of an arc where small flowers bloom in two rows.
The flower releases a sweet fragrance.
* A plant which attaches to another plant to grow, but it is not parasitic.
** A swelling at the base of a stem where epiphytic orchids store nutrients and water.
*** A simple inflorescence of pediceled flowers which blooms upon a common more or less elongated axis.
If the flower is non-pediceled, it is called a spike.
