This famous and extremely fragrant species is native to warm regions ranging from Mexico down through Central America. Large, deeply fringed blooms have a waxy substance and intense green coloring.
A warm growing species native to regions of Mexico and regions further south. As plants mature plenty of very bright direct is needed, though too much will cause red and desiccated foliage tips. Grow in fast draining media that does not need to be replaced often as the needed frequent waterings cause media to decompose rapidly. An excellent candidate for mount or basket culture under the right conditions.
Plants available in 3" pots. (These were repotted in Spring 2021 and are doing well)
