In its native habitat of Northern Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this species can be found growing on trees in swampy woodlands. Here at our nursery it can be found growing outdoors in hanging slatted wood baskets, mounted on trees and cork slabs, thriving in plastic pots, and most spectacularly, as hanging spherical specimens!
The lavender-pink flowers are about 4 inches wide and sport a burgundy lip, and they really stand out on these miniature plants with foliage typically less than six inches tall! This is a fantastic, compact species which has great charm as a small blooming plant, but is unforgettable when it reaches specimen size.
Temperature Tolerant. September-October blooming. Species from Brazil.
