Adenoncos virens – 365 days of orchids – day 1505

We have had some giant orchids this week but todays orchid has such small green flowers that I almost missed the fact it was in flower!

Adenoncos virens (the green adenoncos) is also the smallest flowered of the three Adenoncos species we grow at Writhlington. (See Adenoncos major and paviflora below)

They may have small flowers but we are very fond of all three miniature species.

Adenoncos virens is found in Malaysia, Java, Borneo and Sumatra in mangroves, lowland and hill forests at elevations of 350 to 1220m and we grow the species warm (min 17C and mounted to show off its lovely form.
