Brassia arcuigera

brassia arcuigera



One of my brassia's just finished it's flowering season, again rewarding with masses of delicate, slightly perfumed flowers.
This plant native to Ecuador, Costa Rica, Panama, and Peru and like to grow under a light, filtered shade. In it's native habitat it grows in wet rain forests and in home situation it's very easy orchid to grow.

The flowers have slight jasmine scent and last for several  weeks and the plant tolerate normal garden conditions quite easy - it needs plenty of water during growing time and shady situation for most of the year, making it an ideal orchid to grow for the beginners. It also flowers twice a year during spring and early autumn, putting up quite a show of delicate, spidery blooms.

Wow, what a delightful orchid this one is. So delicate.

I am a novice with orchids. I don't know how to care for them and just let them be. If you saw how they were growing, you'd probably be aghast. :-)

They are addicting, and I try to buy them cheap.

Thank you for your kind comment about my phal orchid.

Wow! Fabulously well grown and flowered. Wish I had the space for a Brassia or two or three.

I love this combination of white and green, plus brown freckles!
