Stelis muscifera- 365 days of orchids – day 1212

Time for another star miniature today. Our large plant of Stelis muscifera is a cloud of flowers.

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.

This is another of our specimen plants due for dividing so look out for lots of small plants next year 🙂
