Laelia gracilis


This miniature orchid is an uncommon species native to Brazil naturally growing on rocky ledges. It bears a beautiful pale yellow flower in the Spring that is star-shaped with pointed petals and sepals. There is not a whole lot known about the species, although it is easy to care for. I recommend it to a beginner.

Place in a position with bright indirect light to full sun with midday shade to prevent the leaves from burning in the afternoon heat. Humidity and adequate air circulation are recommended for optimal growth. This orchid favors warm temperatures, tolerating up to 100 degrees F. Protect from freezing temperatures.
