ORIGIN: Found in the Malaya peninsula and the Indonesian island of Sumatra at elevations around 150 meters.
DESCRIPTION: Small to medium sized, hot growing, pendulous epiphyte with a very short stem carrying 3 to 4, elliptical, obtuse, undulate gradually narrowing below into the basally clasping leaves that varies from P bellina by being smaller leafed and with smaller flowers, as well as being easier to cross breed but the results are not as good as with P bellina which is a reluctant breeder from Borneo. P violaceae has extremely fragrant flowers occurring in the spring that are borne one by one in succession on a pendant, stout, jointed, fractiflex, 4 to 5 [10 to 12.5 cm] long inflorescence with a flattened, zigzag rachis with several [2 to 7], successive flowers with 2 to 3 open at any one time.
FLOWER SIZE: 1.4 inches [3.5 cm] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
