Stelis muscifera – 365 days of orchids – day 857

We have some big orchids to feature on our display at the Devon Orchid Society show tomorrow but I am sure there will be a lot of interest in our miniatures like this tiny stelis species.

This tiny stelis species is native to Ecuador and Venezuela where is grows as an epiphyte in moss and produces an abundance of short spikes and a mass of flowers.

We grow the species in baskets and in pots and it seems to do especially well in small baskets where it enjoys daily watering but plenty of fresh air. The species enjoys shade and can easily be burnt by too much sun from April onwards.
