365 days of orchids – day 142 – Meiracyllium trinasutum

This is a small growing species from the Cattleya family rather sweetly names the three nosed Meiracyllium. It is a plant that is found in Mexico and Central America where it grows on three and rock at around 1000m. Its habit is to cling tight to its mount and so we would definitely grow it mounted rather than potted and having tried it in a number of sections finds it does best in our Warm Americas section in good light, lots of air movement and spraying daily.
