Isabellia pulchella – 365 days of orchids – day 1804

This morning we were greeted with little pink jewels in the greenhouse – the delightful little flowers of Isabellia pulchella.

Isabellia pulchella is native to cloud forest in the Mata Atlantica and enjoys growing cool and moist in our Cool Americas section (min 12C) and the roots that dangle in the air appreciate our daily spraying.

You could described Isabellia pulchella as a miniature orchid and though it flowers as a tiny plant, it grows into wonderful specimen plant over time as the bulbs little bulbs are produced a few cm apart..
