365 days of orchids – day 562 – Stelis thermophila

This is one of our most floriferous species producing masses of pinky brown flowers in the early summer.

Stelis thermophila is native to Brazil where it grows at lower altitudes than some of our cloud forest Stelis species (hence the name meaning warm growing). Despite this we find the species is very happy in our Cool America section where we grow it mounted and in pots.
