Dracula houtteana in a 3" net pot. Most flower spikes produce 4-7 flowers sequentially. The flowers are medium-sized, 2" from tip to tail. The fungus-like lip is hinged and moves in the slightest breeze.
Care: cool, moist, and shady. Minimum low temp of 46° F and a high of around 85°. Anything over 80°, keep the plant really wet. We give our plants lots of light in the winter and lots of shade in the summer.
The nice thing about this group is if you can grow one Drac you can pretty much grow them all. Like their cousins the Masdevallias, when these plants are happy they grow like weeds and are prolific flowerers.
With very few exceptions, these plants flower out of the side or bottom of the basket. Regardless of how the spike emerges, we grow all the plants of this genus in net pots.
