Introducing the Jumellea comorensis, a rare and breathtaking addition to elevate your house plant collection. Originating from the mossy forests of central Madagascar, this premium quality orchid boasts giant-sized elegance, making it a must-have for orchid enthusiasts.

Cultivating the Jumellea comorensis is a rewarding experience, as it thrives in cool conditions. With an elongate stem and distinctive bilobed leaves, this orchid captivates with its unique features. The Jumellea comorensis blooms in both spring and summer, showcasing its beauty with a short, single-flowered inflorescence enveloped by loose sheaths.

Belonging to the genus of white-flowered, often night-fragrant species, Jumellea orchids are renowned for their showy, fragrant blooms. Among them, Jumellea sagittata is well-known, but Jum. fragrans (Mauritius) and J. comorensis (Comoros) also stand out. With a monopodial habit and the potential for offsets at the base, these orchids exhibit versatility in growth patterns. Some, like the Jum. arborescens, boast a vining habit, while others, like the Jum. sagittata, develop into large, handsome specimens with strap-like leaves.

To ensure optimal growth, provide your Jumellea comorensis with an intermediate to warm temperature. Place it in an area with bright, diffused light and ensure excellent air movement to mimic its natural habitat. When it comes to watering, keep the orchid moist, especially during its growing phase. However, consider reducing water somewhat after blooming for a well-balanced care routine.

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

Embrace the allure of the Jumellea comorensis and create a stunning display in your home. Elevate your orchid collection with this rare gem that combines elegance, fragrance, and a touch of Madagascar's enchanting flora.
