Restrepia muscifera – 365 days of orchids – day 1509

Many of our Restrepia species flower on and off throughout the year but most have a peak flowering time, and for Restrepia muscifera the peak flowering is in February.

Restrepia muscifera is very reliable and floriferous species in our Cool Americas section. Restrepia muscifera is a variable small growing species found from Central America through to Ecuador and this red spotted clone in particular is a strong growing and free flowering plant.

We grow restrepias in pots, baskets and mounted too. Plants like this mounted specimen are trouble free providing they are watered well throughout the year, which means watering every day, and twice a day during hot summer spells or in very cold weather like this week, when the heating is working hard and so dries out plants rapidly.
