    Default Fernandezia maculata

    This species is found in the cool wet cloud forests of Ecuador at altitudes up to 2900m.

    F. maculata is best grown mounted and under cool conditions. The temperature must not exceed 22ºC. High humidity and excellent airmovement is essential.

    The flowers are 10-12mm tall and 4mm wide. Plant size 4-5cm. Grown close to the fogger.

    A very difficult genus(all species in this genus) to grow and bloom. Outstanding job on that one, Thomas.
