    Hormidium pygmaeum (syn. Encyclia pygmaea)

    • Hormidium pygmaeum
    • Hormidium pygmaeum

    Well-established blooming size plant in a 3" basket. Limited quantity!

    This species is one of the northernmost growing epiphytic orchids in the world! Historically found as far north as Florida and as far south as Brazil.

    Mini-small rambling plant. Prefers to be mounted or in hanging baskets where most of the plant can just hang in the air. The non-resupinate white flowers (that turn light green towards the tips of the petals) are the size of a shirt button and have a purple dot at the end of the lip. If you are into mini orchids or the "Encyclia group" this would be a great addition to your collection.

    Care: Cool-warm temps, regular watering, and light feeding spring-fall with a drier rest period in the winter.
