Laelia anceps grows well and blooms well in cultivation. It grows in Mexico and Honduras. It is warm to hot growing, needs a dry winter rest and bright light. If it is dry it can winter outside if there is no hard freeze.

This plant is in sphagnum over peanuts in a 4 1/2-inch clay pot. There are two pseudobulbs from a backbulb division and a new growth that failed to mature.
