Introducing Cyrtopodium andersonii, a stunning orchid species native to diverse regions spanning from Florida to South America. Renowned for its giant size and captivating floral display, this orchid is a must-have for any enthusiast seeking to adorn their space with exotic beauty.

Cyrtopodium andersonii boasts magnificent blooms that emerge in the winter and spring, adding a burst of color to any collection. Its flowers, adorned with green splashes, yellow hues, and delicate stripes, exhibit a unique twist, captivating the beholder with their intricate beauty. The distinctively designed yellow lips further enhance its allure, giving the plant a truly remarkable appearance.

In its natural habitat, Cyrtopodium andersonii can be found in various growing conditions, from epiphytic environments with sprawling root nests to lithophytic and terrestrial settings. To replicate these conditions in cultivation, it's recommended to grow this orchid in a well-draining medium such as medium bark, tree fern, or full sphagnum moss. Many enthusiasts prefer to mount their plants for optimal growth and display.

During the growing season, Cyrtopodium andersonii thrives with ample water, but it appreciates a rest period once growth is completed. Fertilization is key to supporting healthy growth and robust blooms. Heavy fertilization with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer during the growing season, coupled with bi-monthly feedings, ensures optimal nutrition for the plant.

Temperature-wise, Cyrtopodium andersonii prefers warm to intermediate conditions, while bright light is essential for its development. Many specimens require full sun exposure to stimulate blooming and maintain vigorous growth.

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

When it comes to potting, larger plants benefit from spacious clay pots filled with a well-draining mix, while smaller species thrive in smaller clay pots. Careful consideration of pot size and substrate ensures the health and vitality of your Cyrtopodium andersonii, allowing you to enjoy its splendor for years to come.
