This is a beautiful natural hybrid that varies quite a bit in appearance; some having much more of one parent seemingly than the other which isn't always the case in primary hybrids.  Some specimens grow to 18" tall, with a semi bulbous to bulbous base and leaves that recurve and hang down as the plant matures
