365 days of orchids – day 484 – Stelis superbiens
This is the largest flowered of our many Stelis species and the soft pinky-brown flowers give a subtle but beautiful display.
The species is found from Mexico right through Central and South America to Peru. It grows a little lower than many of our very cool growing stelis from 1000-2000m altitude in damp forest. Despite being a little warmer growing than the rest we treat this species the same as out=r other Stelis – growing it in a small basket and keeping in well watered and shady throughout the year.
