Micropera obtusa – 365 days of orchids – day 918

A new orchid for 365 days is this species native to warm forests from Sikkim to Thailand. It has similar growth to Micropera rostrata but smaller flowers in pink and yellow.

We grow both species in our warm asia section and find that they do well in baskets or mounted to suit the semi-pendulous growth habits and extensive arial roots.

Both species were originally included in Aerides but have been separated on the basis of the unusual flower structure.
