Tricholglottis smithii – 365 days of orchids – day 884

This pretty little orchid is native to Borneo and Sumatra and one we will keep an eye out for in our forthcoming expeditions to Sarawak in July and October. The species is found in swamp forest and hill forests up to 1300m altitude.

The plant has semi-pendulous stems with alternate 4cm leaves and the long lasting flowers appear from leaf axils.

We grow the species in a small basket in Warm Asia (min 17C) where it seems happiest in a shaded spot. This is the first time the species has featured in 365 Days.
