Cool growing miniature species which grow at high altitude in Central and South America. These are ideal for terrariums as they enjoy the humidity created in that environment. Clump- forming plants with thick leaves on a thin stem. The flowers are produced where the leaf meets the stem and they can bloom several times a year in any season. The exquisite flowers have detailed patterning, best seen with a microscope!
Grow in a minimum 10C in Winter, shaded in summer and damp all year. They are potted in a mix of sphagnum moss and Perlite to help keep them moist. Mist leaves regularly to increase the humidity.
Potted in a 7cm pot.
