Goodyera procera is a species of orchid. It is widespread across much of Asia, including China, Japan, India, Thailand, Indonesia, etc.[1][2]

Goodyera procera is a 20 to 40 cm tall plant with white flowers. It does not creep. Easy to grow under lights, 20 C to 30C. Grows well in an open medium like fine bark. Unlike many other Goodyeras, this one does not have patterns on the leaves.
