Introducing the Exquisite Brasiliorchis Schunkeana: A Tropical Marvel for Your Collection!

Discover the captivating beauty of Brasiliorchis schunkeana, an enchanting orchid species native to the lush rainforests of Brazil, specifically in the state of Espirito Santo. This remarkable orchid thrives in intermediate to warm conditions, making it a perfect addition to your tropical plant collection.

Blossoms of Elegance: During the summer, this exquisite orchid graces your space with bunches of nearly black, fragrant flowers that encircle the base of the plant. The contrast between the dark, almost black blooms and the lush green foliage is nothing short of breathtaking. These mesmerizing flowers last for approximately four weeks, allowing you to savor their beauty for an extended period.

Sunlight and Water - The Perfect Balance: Brasiliorchis schunkeana is known to be an orchid that enjoys moderate light and generous hydration. Its natural habitat in the rainforests of Brazil is characterized by dappled sunlight, and this orchid has adapted to thrive in such conditions. When cultivating this beauty in your own space, ensure it receives an adequate amount of light without exposing it to direct, harsh sunlight.

As for watering, it's crucial to maintain a balance. We recommend planting Brasiliorchis schunkeana in New Zealand sphagnum moss. Water the orchid when the media feels lightly damp to the touch, allowing it to dry slightly between watering sessions. This careful balance of moisture ensures the health and vitality of your plant.

Seasonal Beauty: Typically, Brasiliorchis schunkeana blesses us with its captivating flowers in the fall. However, it's worth noting that this incredible species occasionally surprises us with blooms in the spring as well, adding a touch of magic to your year-round plant collection.

Elevate your orchid collection with the timeless elegance of Brasiliorchis schunkeana. Its stunning, fragrant flowers and adaptability to a wide range of temperatures make it a must-have for any orchid enthusiast. Bring a piece of the Brazilian rainforests into your home and enjoy the natural wonder of this remarkable orchid.

This is blooming size in a 4" pot about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!
