365 days of orchids – day 250 – Macroclinium lineare

We have made it to day 250 with our daily posts and today we have one of our smaller miniatures. This is our second macroclinium species to feature in 365 days of orchids. Macroclinium lineare is found in warm mossy forests in Costa Rica and Panama at around 700-1400m. This species has shorter flower spikes than Macroclinium chasei  (day 117) but larger flowers and when it flowers well it produces a profusion of flowers that all open together giving a great display.

We grow the species mounted in Warm Americas (Min 15C) and spray it daily. The pollinator is a euglossine bee.
