Flowering in summer. Flowers are angular and thin with light apple green color. Lips are marked with darker green and sienna spotted "warts". This warty spider orchid is peppery in fragrance and its slender geometric preciseness. It is epiphyte cold grower, evergreen orchid. Native to the montane forests from Mexico and Nicaragua to northwestern Brazil. Flowers are pollinated by a spider-stinging wasp that thinks the flower is a prey and stings the flower, effectively pollinating the orchid!
