Zootrophion dayanum

Description

Well-established blooming size plant in a 2.25" pot.

Please note: the older leaves on the plant may have a few holes in them. This is not pest damage, just old leaves that were damaged while being moved a while back. Lots of new growth emerging and can be seen in the plant picture.

This plant has flowers that never truly open. Instead a tiny slit forms in the side of the flower allowing the tiny gnats that pollinate it in. The flowers are dark purple on the outside and gold with purple dots on the inside. The flowers measure just under an inch long and last 6 weeks. 

These plants grow well in cool to warm temps with medium/low light and should not be allowed to dry out completely. Flowers in the late fall.

If you're into Pleurothallids, rare plants or the weird orchids, this is a good one!
