Stelis muscifera

This tiny stelis species is native to Ecuador and Venezuela where is grows as an epiphyte in moss and produces an abundance of short spikes and a mass of flowers.

We grow the species in baskets and in pots in our Cloud Forest Greenhouse where plants enjoys plenty of water and shade. The leaves can easily be burnt by too much sun from April onwards.

Plants flower when small but grow into lovely specimen plants over time. We have friends that succeed well with the species in a terrarium.
