Hormidium pygmaeum (syn. Encyclia pygmaea)

Description

Well-established blooming size plant in a 3" basket. Limited quantity!

This species is one of the northern most growing epiphytic orchids in the world! Historically found as far north as Florida and as far south as Brazil.

Mini-small rambling plant. Prefers to be mounted or in hanging baskets where most of the plant can just hang in the air. The non resupinate white flowers (that turn light green towards the tips of the petals) are the size of a shirt button and have a purple dot at the end of the lip. If you are into mini orchids or the "Encyclia group" this would be a great addition to your collection.

Care: Cool-warm temps, regular watering and light feeding spring-fall with a drier rest period in the winter.
