Barkeria spectabilis grows in Southern Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador on oak trees above 4000 feet. It is cool to warm growing, needs bright light with even brighter in winter and blooms in spring. The genus Barkeria (Bark) contains fewer than 20 species growing in Central America. All need a bright and dry winter rest.
