365 days of orchids – day 214 – Odontoglossum rhynchanthum

This beautiful species is endemic to Colombia where it grows in cloud forest above 2000m. Authorities describe the species as producing 30cm spikes with up to seven flowers but our clone produces spikes to 70cm with up to twelve flowers. This year our specimen plant has thirteen spikes and looks amazing.

We grow our plants cool (minimum 12C) and damp all year.
