Trisitella cordeliae – 365 days of orchids – day 1403

Yesterday’s orchid was small, but todays is a tiny mini-miniature that wows with stunning flowers every autumn.

Trisetella cordeliae has tiny 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.
