Brassia bennettiorum

Brassia bennettiorum is a miniature that comes from the cloud forests of Ecuador where it grows in moss from 1200 to 2400m altitude.

We find this plant does best in 3cm pots and baskets amongst miniature masdevallia species where we keep it well watered throughout the year, but this stock plant is growing in an 8cm basket and is loving life.

The flowers are produced from maturing growths and, although small, plants quickly form clumps and so produce many flowers together to give a charming display. This is yet another example of the wonderful diversity of Orchid Species.

We grow this species in baskets and pots in our 'Cloud Forest Glasshouse' minimum 12C and water well all year (every two days)
