Trichoglottis rosea- 365 days of orchids – day 869

This is another really fragrant orchid to follow on from yesterdays Maxillaria.

Trichoglottis rosea is native to the Phillipines and Taiwan where it grows in lowland forest. It has long lasting waxy flowers that appear along the stem at the leaf axils and as our plant grows are becoming increasingly abundant.

The plant seems to prefer to grow pendulously and so we grow it both mounted and in baskets. Jess also grows it very successfully as a house plant.

This is a species students hope to see in Taiwan next March at the World Orchid Congress. We will keep you informed.
