Introducing the exquisite Encyclia bohnkiana, a delightful addition to any orchid enthusiast's collection. Endemic to the lush Atlantic rainforest of northeastern Brazil, this miniature marvel blooms with grace and elegance, adorning your space with its dainty lime green flowers accented by a pristine white lip.

Cultivating Encyclia bohnkiana is a rewarding endeavor, and with the right care, you can enjoy its stunning blooms year after year. Here are some essential tips to ensure your orchid thrives:

1. Optimal Environment: Originating from warm and humid climates, Encyclia bohnkiana thrives in high humidity conditions. For indoor cultivation, consider a terrarium, vivarium, or humidity chamber to maintain the ideal moisture levels.

2. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist by watering generously every 5 to 7 days. Allow the roots to dry slightly between waterings to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

3. Humidity Maintenance: Maintain humidity levels around 50 percent. You can achieve this by misting your orchid plant in the morning or using an indoor humidifier.

4. Light Requirements: Provide bright, indirect light for your Encyclia bohnkiana. Avoid direct sunlight or exposure to excessive heat, as this can cause damage to the delicate flowers and leaves.

5. Temperature Control: Maintain a temperature range of 21 to 29 degrees Celsius during the daytime, ensuring protection from intense afternoon heat with a sheer curtain. Nighttime temperatures between 12 and 21 degrees Celsius are ideal for optimal growth.

6. Feeding Schedule: Feed your orchid weekly with a weakly balanced 20-20-20 orchid fertilizer solution, immediately after watering. This ensures that your Encyclia bohnkiana receives essential nutrients for healthy growth and vibrant blooms.

This is a blooming size in a 3" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

Whether mounted on a piece of wood bark or nestled in sphagnum moss, Encyclia bohnkiana adds a touch of tropical beauty to any space. With proper care and attention to its specific needs, you'll be rewarded with the enchanting sight of its delicate blooms, bringing the splendor of the Brazilian rainforest into your home.
