A small-growing orchid with short, stiff, opposing leaves and small, white flowers.


We have not been able to find much cultural information about this orchid, other than that it likes humidity and shade, with warm temperatures during the summer months and cooler during the winter. As with all vandaceous orchids, try to ensure that roots are dry by the cool of the evening.

It does well mounted, as it grows naturally on branches and tree trunks.

Other InfoIf you have any information about the cultural requirements of this orchid we would love to hear from you. Please use the form on our contact page.

NoteCultural information should only be used as a guide, and should be to be adapted to suit you. Your physical location; where you grow your plants, how much time you have to devote to their care, and many other factors, will need to be taken into account. Only then can you decide on the cultural methods that best suit you and your plants.
