Native to Central America and Mexico, the beautiful Guarianthe aurantiaca blooms in late winter/early spring. The brilliant flowers are a fire-y orange color that remind me of an intense sunset. This spotted form has burgundy freckles on the petals. This showy orchid would brighten up any space!

For this orchid, the roots like to dry out quickly, so pot in a thick, airy, fast drying orchid mix.
Water thoroughly and often in growing months, in cooler months water much less frequently.
In their native habitat, these orchids are used to going through a dry season in the cooler months. It needs strong air movement and lots of humidity about 50% or above.
