    Default Restrepia trichoglossa

    This cute little orchid seems very happy. It has been blooming continuously for a month and a half. I posted back in June requesting the orchid identification and got it thanks to the help of the members here. I just wanted to share an updated photo.

    another wow, I'm amazed how the smallest of blooms can have such intricate markings and detail.

    How are you growing yours. I have one and it is growing like crazy but doesn't bloom. It was blooming when I bought it over a year ago. I love these guys but won't buy anymore until this one blooms for me. What is your secret? Love yours and the bloom.

    Thanks Bill. I grow this one in very bright light and soak it every morning. It drys out by the afternoon, but I keep the humidity up above 75% all the time. I feed it a little fertilizer, but very little and only once every couple of weeks. Good luck with yours!

    cheers,
