New to us miniature species that is just perfect for wardian cases and large terrariums.  This tiny grower is native to New Guinea and has a liking for high elevations.  Creeping foliage with bright orange and yellow goldfish shaped blooms. 

Growing Suggestions- Medium light, similar to Phalaenopsis conditions is best. Very bright light can cause dehydrated and stressed foliage. Even plants grown in pots have unruly aerial roots which means high humidity is a plus, in addition to regular watering. Plants can be grown in pots with bark or sphagnum moss. Always provide good air movement (like all orchids) so humidity will not cause bacterial spotting of the leaves.  Suitable for mount culture if the humidity is kept high enough. This is suggested as an intermediate grower, which means temperatures of 55°-75° are best. 

We are offering a group of Blooming Size plants in 2.5" pots. These are expected to bloom for the first time in the coming 12 months.  Please remember this is a tiny growing miniature. 


These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. Because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.
