Porroglossum hoeijeri

January 21, 2015

Porroglossum hoeijeri Luer 1985.

I love all Porroglossum species and grove several of them in my vivaria. They all love high mumidity and good air circulation. Also cool temperatures. I grow mine in temperatures of Max +19°C and Min +10°C now in winter time. Slightly warmer in summer. Some dont develop flowers if they don´t grow in mist. Porroglossum hoeijeri is a little bit easier than other Porroglossum sp. This species grow in Ecuador at around 2000 meters.

    Porroglossum is one of my favourite genera, they all look so unusual but also pretty and the moving lip is very interesting
