Description: From one of our collections made in the deep cold valley of Lachung in the east of Sikkim in 1994. Where we found a clump of this species growing at the edge of dense forest amongst rocks. Where their fleshy roots had formed a dense clump with short upright stems to 30cm tall. With stem-sheathing narrow foliage auricled at the base and congested terminal clusters of elongated bursting seed capsules, which had succeeded the broad-lipped orchid-like successive purple flowers, June-October. Easily grown in sun or shade in a humus-rich soil that is drained. Large plants.
