A brilliantly coloured species from Centra America. Terrestrial, requiring a rich sandy soil and leafmould media with good drainage and maximum sunlight.
In winter it is deciduous and the bulbs should be kept barely damp until the Spring new growth appears. At that time, a repot into fresh media is of benefit.
Warm to intermediate, but duu to its winter dormancy, should grow anywhere.
