This species orignates from New Guinea and is allied to H. macgillivrayi and H. onychoides. It is found below 600 meters in the top of trees in the rain forest. It is a rampant grower that can and will produce meters of growth. The large flowers appear all the year round and are a wonderful sight with bunches of up to 20 flowers at a time. The flowers are usually red and among the largest in the genus. In the winter, when the plant is kept at a temperature around 20 degrees C., the flowers are red. In the summer, when the temperatures can reach 40 degrees C., the same clone in the greenhouse will produce white flowers.
Since I like the plant very much, I have adapoted the flower as my logo and you will find it on my website, my blog, my twitter and my business card.
