    Default Oerstedella centradenia

    Native to Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama in wet lower montane evergreen to semi-deciduous forests from elevations of 1200 to 1500 meters in full to partial sun. It is long bloomer. This one is just a seedling that was part of a Christmas gift from a forum friend.

    That is a very delicate colour, how big are the flowers and the plant?

    the flowers are about an inch tall, counting that big lip. It is only a seedling so I am not sure how big the plant is going to get. At this time I only have one growth that is 3" tall. So far the flowers have been open for a month.

    I had one of those once *sigh* It did not enjoy life on my plant stand. Not sure if the lack humidity was an issue

    While they do start blooming at a small size they can get very tall. This is part do to their tendency to form keikis at the tops of older canes and later the keikis form keikis, and........
