Phalaenopsis braceana

£15.00 (Sold out)

Phalaenopsis braceana is a true miniature, with leaves rarely growing larger than 5 cm. These plants are decidious in nature, and more often than not leaves are not present, and so the masses of long roots have adapted to produce clorophyll for the plant. The colour variable flowers, from yellow to bronze-green, open on arching to pendant inflorescences, and are said to smell like bacon!

Phalaenopsis braceana is known to grow in Buthan and China at elevations of 1,100 to 1,700 metres, with one specimen being recorded at 2,100 metres of altitude.

This is probably one of the more challenging, yet rewarding species of Phalaenopsis to grow, needing constant moisture throughout the growing season, with drier conditions during winter.

Plants provided are flowering size.
