Miniature Orchids in Perspective ðŸ”Žâœ¾ðŸ”


Corybas ecarinatus

This is really not about some amazing orchid bloom, more about the leafless species. This one came from Panama some 2 years ago, very tiny poor little thing. I was actually super excited that it did survive, and a few days ago I did find spikes that I completely missed most likely for days! It is very hard to take any good picture of this very tiny bloom. Grown warm / hot year round, mounted, shade, misting daily, sometimes multiple times, regular fertilizing.

Miniature species from Asia, grown outside year round, bright shade, misting daily, regular fertilizing.

Yesterday I found an unusual Orchid that grows only on the giant Rhododendron branches, saw many of them. their sizes are so tiny that you really have to look hard for them, the whole bunch is about the size of a pop corn, unfortunately I could not identify it. Anyone out there know this species?

Distribution: from Myanmar to Thai Peninsula

I have six species from this genus in a small ‘hot house’ near a bright window inside my home. I give it a light misting each day and it is always moist. Not an easy species to maintain but I love the whole genus……hope the photo captures the beauty of this one.
