Commonly called the pigeon orchid, it is found in Chinese Himalayas, Taiwan, India, Sri Lanka, Andaman Islands, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Lesser Sunda Islands, Moluccas, Sulawesi, Sumatra, Papua New Guinea, Christmas Islands and the Philippines in semi-deciduous and deciduous dry lowland forests and savanna-like woodlands at an altitude of sea-level to 500m and grows small to large sized, warm to hot, best mounted on wood with spindle shaped, swollen basally for a few nodes, ridged, yellow with age stems that can branch, carrying, 4 to 19, thick, leathery, eventually deciduous leaves that will flower on the upper nodes of the leafless older canes with several to many fragrant flowers, albeit for only a few hours, after a temperature drop and rain. It has a tendency to keiki and when there are 2 small pseudobulbs and a third starting they can be broken away from the old pseudobulb and mounted to a small branch. This species is often found in conjunction with ants and may benefit from their presence.
