Sophronitis (Cattleya) cernua-

$25.00

Availability: Out of stock

Quantity Available: 0

Sophronitis cernua is an older name, but as an older orchid grower I will continue to use it.  Current taxonomy puts this in with the other cattleyas.  These are miniature epiphytes from southeast Brazil and northeast Argentina, and by far the easiest of the sophronitis species to grow.  Although they come in a number of fairly rare color forms, these are the standard color - ranging from dark orange to an orange red depending on the clone.  Although you could probably grow this in a pot, it is best suited to mounted culture.  On a mount, the small leaves and short rhizomes will stay close to the mount, resulting in a very close, shingled appearance.  Flowers appear in clusters and are of large size when you compare them to the size of the plant.  I water these every day to every other day in the summer, and a couple times a week in winter.  Not recommended for terrariums, unless ample air movement can be provided.  Sophronitis cernua are sold as mounted plants only.

 

Mounts are approximately 4'' tall.
