Tolumnia sylvestre Blooming Size Species Orchid

Tolumnia are true miniature orchids that are originally from the Caribbean islands. Typically these have been called "Equitants". Tolumnia have leaves that in cross-section look like fleshy triangles or arrowheads. This shape was adapted by the plant to survive in the drier environments found on their native islands. The leaves hold water so that it can be reserved for short dry periods. They appreciate bright light, high humidity and warm temperatures similar to their native environment. Just provide them water when they need it and lots of air movement.

The Tolumnia sylvestre species is native to Cuba (1958). This micro-mini species is an easy member of the Tolumnia family. Tolumnia sylvestre is an equitant epiphyte that requires warm to hot growing conditions and bright light. They grow well with Cattlleya or Phalaenopsis. The 1/2” flowers are lavender–pink with a bit of brown and yellow. These flowers are fragrant and long lasting and occur in the spring or early summer. It forms keikis very easily.

This is a great plant for miniature collections. Tolumnia sylvestre is mounted and blooming size. It forms keikis easily, multiplying quickly! You will need more because everyone loves it. This micro miniature is blooming size.
