Restrepia purpurea ‘Rayas Vino Tinto’

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Americas, Ecuador, Peru, South America

Restrepia purpurea ‘Rayas Vino Tinto’ is a miniature sized, cool growing, epiphytic orchid species, that can be found growing in Ecuador and Peru.  I do wonder if this miniature orchid should be known simply as Restrepia purpurea, as I see no distinguishable differences between this plant and Restrepia purpurea ‘Rayas Vino Tinto’.

Restrepia purpurea ‘Rayas Vino Tinto’ is a very floriferous miniature orchid species, my plants are nearly always in flower.  The flowers are not scented but plants produce dark pink and white, eye-catching, striped flowers.

This Restrepia purpurea ‘Rayas Vino Tinto’ specimen was first introduced to my BiOrbAir terrarium, you can see how well this miniature orchid is grew in the BiOrbAir terrarium in my Long-term review of the BiOrbAir (part three).  This link will take you straight to the trial update that was written at the time that this Restrepia purpurea ‘Rayas Vino Tinto’ specimen was first introduced to this terrarium.  In this, and the continuing trial updates, you can follow this miniature orchid’s growth and development.
