Trisetella cordeliae- 365 days of orchids – day 1058
The star of the greenhouse this morning is a group of our mini-miniature trisetellas. Trisetella cordeliae which is really small both in terms of its leaves – just 10mm long and short spikes with small (but relatively large) attractive hairy pink flowers. The flower spikes produce a succession of flowers over a long period.
The species is endemic to Peruvian cloud forests and we treat it the same as other Trisetella – cool, damp and shaded.
