A robust, fast grower species with tall spikes of 2 to 3cm flowers. A deciduous species, best treated as a terrestrial and rested dry during winter. In spring, repot into fresh media. Maximum sunlight as the new growths appear will help initiate flowering.
As for all Habenarias, a rich media of leafmould, old bark, coarse sand and some fertiliser will produce large robust growths. Spikes should be staked as the head of flowers can be relatively heavy.
A Mexican species raised from seed collected a long time ago, it appears to be a warm to intermediate grower, but due to its dormancy, could be grown anywhere if kept dry in winter.
