Trisetella cordeliae – 365 days of orchids – day 1731

It is mini-miniature time in the greenhouse and the star of the greenhouse this morning are a group of Trisetella cordeliaes.

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.
