An epiphyte with compressed pseudobulbs and narrow leaves, Rodriguezia secunda is a small to miniature plant that does especially well under artificial light. The six inch spray has 20 to 30 rosy flowers that grow on one side of the stem.

Its blooming time is quite variable. Rodriguezia secunda prefers cool temperatures, bright to filtered light, perfect drainage, and to be kept evenly moist.
