Trichoglottis pusilla

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Java, Sumatra

Trichoglottis pusilla is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species, which originates from Java, Sumatra, and Indonesia, where this orchid can be found growing near the tops of trees, in forested areas.

Trichoglottis pusilla produces fragrant, large white flowers, which are marked with bright, clear red stripes, giving this orchid a very noticeable, candy cane striped bloom.  Plants have dark green coloured leaves.

Trichoglottis pusilla plants grow best when they’re mounted onto a piece of cork bark or tree fern.  This orchid species favours growing in areas that enjoy bright, but indirect light, in a humid environment, but for optimum growth, it’s also very important to provide good air circulation around the plants.  Trichoglottis pusilla enjoys growing in cool, intermediate, to warm temperatures.
