365 days of orchids – day 318 – Trisetella cordeliae

To follow Trisetella scobina we have Trisitella cordeliae which is even smaller both in terms of its leaves – just 10mm long and much shorter spikes with small (but relatively large) attractive hairy pink flowers. Like T. scobina, the flower spikes produce a succession of flowers over a long period.

The species is endemic to Peruvian cloud forests and we treat it the same as other Trisetella – cool, damp and shaded.
