Cochleanthes amazonica x Amazing *Limited Edition*

SKU:CochAA/30

Be the first to review this product First to review this product

What an intriguing addition to your collection! This cool growing genus is native to portions of South America, and is generally found in wet forested areas under dense shade. Pale colored blooms with varying lavender-blue lip markings will appear around the base of thin foliage.


Growing Suggestions: We suggest these for cool to intermediate growing conditions with summer temperatures no warmer than approximately 85 degrees. Plants should be grown in low to medium light, similar to many Paphiopedilums and Phalaenopsis. The foliage is very thin and burns easily in bright light. This genus does not have pseudobulbs to retain water so watering should be done before media has dried completely. Potting media should be moisture retentive, but drain freely to avoid root rot from frequent waterings. Fertilize at half strength, even in spring and summer. High humidity is also recommended, and must be balanced with fresh airflow to prevent leaf spotting.  (May not be suitable as a windowsill grower in all homes.)


We are offering healthy, Blooming Size plants in 3" pots.  We expect first blooms on these in the coming 6-12 months.
