Campylocentrum brenesii – A tiny tiny species.

November 26, 2012

Campylocentrum brenesii. Schltr 1923.

 

Grows in Panama, Costa Rica and Guatemala at 1000 – 2000 meters. Tiny orchid that grows exposed as a epiphyte mainly on tree trunks in forests or around plantations or pastures.

The plant is very small. The flowers are just 2-3 mm long and 1,2-1,5 mm across. Leafs 10 mm. I find this species very hard to get to flower. But after some years now it flowered for the first time. It want´s a lot of light and dry periods. I grow it on a small piece of Xaxim.

Min temp in winter +10°C to +12°C and Max temp in winter +19°C. It needs a lot of humidity but not be wet for longer periods.
