Full ShadeCold Spring Fall

Common Name Dodson's Telipogon [American Botanist in Ecuador current]

Flower Size

Found in Ecuador in wet highland cloud forests at elevations of 2400 to 2900 meters as a cold growing epiphyte or sometimes terrestrial on steep banks and blooms in the spring and fall.

Although the photo says T aff. dodsoni, I am almost positive that the photo is the correct species.
