Pot Size: 2 litre
Description: A bit of a mystery from a collection we made with an officer of the Vietnamese Environment Agency at Bavi, a small mountainous area close to Hanoi in late 2003. Looking very similar to A. elatior in my mind with broadly ovate leathery leaves and bearing similar flowers directly from the underground rhizome in the middle of winter. With purple prominent stigma prominently crossed, inside an eight-lobed perianth, heavily purple spotted on its exterior. Best grown in a shaded warm position in a humus rich fertile soil that is well drained avoiding over watering. Keep well out of winds especially freezing winds.
