Comparettia speciosa

Dr. Bill's Orchids, LLC

Regular price $25.00

  • Description

MINI-Small size. Blooms in summer. Not commonly found! Pendant growth habit. Don't cut flower spike until it turns brown- can branch and even reflower if left alone!

Sample bloom photo and other info: Comparettia speciosa IOSPE (Usually a bright red-orange color)

Species/Hybrid: Species

Plant size: BS, may have previously bloomed

In bud/bloom?: No

Pot size:

Fragrant?: No

Culture: warm to cool growing, low-medium light, humidity (60% or more). Water regularly to keep evenly moist- do not let them dry out. While they don't want to dry out, need to make sure that the media mix is aerated as well (can mix perlite in with moss, loosely pack moss, bark mix, etc). Fertilize weakly all year, but make sure to provide flushes to minimize salt buildup.  AOS Comparettia culture guide
