Live Brassavola orchid plant is currently spiking to flowering!
This batch will be much larger than the listing photos, overgrowing their 3″ pots.
Brassavola is a genus of orchid whose blooms are uniquely slender and thick – it’s commonly hybridized with Cattleya varieties to make interesting and showy flowers. This compact growing orchid will produce flowers with a frilly white labellum and long pale green petals.
Live mini orchid plant comes in a 3″ nursery pot with the perfect potting media to keep your new friend happy and healthy. Also available potted up with a decorative organic polymer pot. If choosing organic polymer, please specify your color (Pink, Red, Yellow, Green, Brown, or Black) or let us choose one for you!
Care is very easy – this plant will put out new spikes year after year with minimal attention! This fuzzy-flowered orchid prefers medium to bright indirect light, regular fertilization (“weakly, weekly”), and occasional misting. Choose an eastern exposure (or south/west with a dappled curtain) for the most vigorous growth!
