Cleisostoma duplicilobum Garay 1972


Cleisostoma duplicilobum (J.J. Sm.) Garay 1972 is an epiphytic growing orchid species native to Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Inflorescences get lengths up to about 30 cm and are packed with up to 25 small flowers. The beautiful, but very small flowers get a size of just about 0,8 cm in diameter and are best viewed with a magnifying glass or a macro lens. Flowering period: January - May. Cleisostoma duplicilobum orchids are protected by CITES Appendix II (trade controlled to avoid use incompatible with species survival). The tropical orchid requires a warm to hot, humid climate and a location in partial shade – full shade. Waterings should be restricted during the winter rest.
