DESCRIPTION:
This accession grows to 2 - 3 meters tall. Inflorescence is terminal on a leafy sheath, and is to varying degrees a pendent inflorescence - especially as it matures. The upper leaves tend to hide the inflorescence until it elongages and matures. The sheath, ligules and petioles are glabrous or nearly so. The upper and lower sides of the leaves are minutely puberulous. The bracts are purple at the base and green toward the apex, not appendaged, with a yellow nectar callus. The flowers are mostly white, open labellum, with a yellow throat and pink stamen.
