Renanthera citrina Aver. 1997


Renanthera citrina Aver. 1997 is an epiphytic, occasionally also lithophytic growing, orchid species native to Vietnam, which has recently
been discovered in the mid of the 90th.

Flowers reach a size of about 6 cm. Inflorescences get lengths up to about 45 cm and are packed with up to 25 simultaneously opening flowers. Flowering period: February - May. Renanthera citrina orchids are protected by CITES Appendix II (trade controlled to avoid use incompatible with species survival). The small sized orchid species requires a warm – hot, humid climate and a location in partial shade - full sun. Plants should be kept moist, but not wet and should be cultivated in a very good-drained potting medium or mounted on wood.
