Stelis cilliolata

Stelis cilliolata is a mini-miniature orchid species with short sprays of pink flowers that demand inspection with a magnifying glass. The small pink flowers are surrounded by fluffy little hairs (hence the name). 

The species is endemic to Ecuador where it is found in wet forests from 1500 to 2400m and we find it straight forward when kept cool and well watered.

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