Dracula mantissa

Description

Dracula mantissa in 3" net pots, and specimen-size 4" net pots. Please note that plant may not currently be in spike or flower when shipped. 

This species produces very small (about the size of a dime) flowers that truly have a monkey face! Flowers late winter for us and a plant the size of the one in this listing can produce 20-40 flower spikes all at once. Not only that, each flower spike will produce 2-5 flowers in succession over a period of a couple of months. The short flower spikes emerge around the margin of the plant and the flowers face down. When seen from below it looks like a pack of mini monkeys staring down at you! Best if hung up in a basket but this is one of the few Dracula species that can be grown in a pot on a table.

These plants are wonderful to own if you can give them what they want.

Care: Minimum low temp of 46° F and a high of around 85°. Anything over 80°, keep the plant really wet. We like to water them morning and evening at least a couple of times a week in the summer. Folks with greenhouses that have swamp coolers grow them directly in front of the cooler. We give our plants lots of light in the winter and lots of shade in the summer.
