365 days of orchids – day 467 – Schomburgkia splendida

Schomburgkia is a genus related to Cattleya that includes a number of large growing plants with impressive spikes of unusual flowers. Schomburgkia splendida is native to Ecuador and Colombia where it grows on trees and rocks in dryish forests around 600- 1000m. We therefore grow the species in open compost in a basket high in our Warm Americas section where it experiences a suitably warm and bright environment.
