This weird species is from central Africa and is found at elevations up to 3000 feet. In the 1700's it was considered to be a missing link between plants and animals because the relatively large lips are hinged in such a manner that the most imperceptible, slight breeze would make the flower move and wiggle as if it were alive. To see it shake, rattle and roll go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiJthtWmRTQ to see the video. They are easy growers doing best intermediate to warm, shady and moist. Our plants are blooming size divisions.
