In its native habitat of northern Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, this species can be found growing on trees in swampy woodlands. Here at our nursery it can be found growing outdoors in hanging slatted wood baskets, mounted on trees and cork slabs, in overgrown plastic pots, and most spectacularly, as hanging spherical specimens. This is a species which has great charm when a small blooming plant, but is unforgettable as it quickly reaches specimen size. Temperature Tolerant. September-October blooming. Species from Brazil.
