Introducing the exquisite Meiracyllium trinasutum var. alba  – a captivating miniature orchid that hails from the lush regions of southern Mexico, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Emanating elegance in every delicate detail, this botanical gem is a must-have addition to your orchid collection.

Originating from the heart of Central America, the alba variety boasts a distinctive charm that's hard to resist. With its rambling and matting growth habit, it presents a unique spectacle of nature's beauty.

Its circular leaves lend an air of graceful simplicity, eliminating the need for pseudobulbs. The pièce de résistance, however, is its blooms. Imagine delicate flowers that emit a mesmerizing fragrance reminiscent of cinnamon, infusing your space with an enchanting aroma.

The alba variant of these blooms adds an extra touch of elegance, a rare and beautiful white strain in the Cattleya alliance.

Caring for the Meiracyllium trinasutum var. alba is a delightful journey in nurturing botanical artistry. Here's how you can ensure its flourishing presence:

1. Temperature: This orchid thrives in a range of cool to warm temperatures, creating an adaptable environment for growth. Aim to maintain temperatures that mimic its native habitat.

2. Light Level: Providing the ideal light conditions is essential. Place your 'Hihimanu' orchid in an area with low to medium light, allowing it to bask in gentle, filtered sunlight. Avoid direct exposure to intense rays to prevent scorching.

3. Bloom Season: Spring, summer, and fall are the seasons of splendor for the 'Hihimanu.' Watch as it adorns itself with blooms that evoke the spirit of nature's most vibrant moments.

4. Growing Technique: Embrace the charm of this orchid by growing it similarly to Brassavolas. While it shares some care characteristics, its unique qualities set it apart. Interestingly, it exhibits greater tolerance for cooler winters, offering you a delightful display even in colder months.

5. Mounting: We highly recommend growing your 'Hihimanu' mounted on cork slabs, allowing it to indulge its innate inclination to crawl. This not only showcases its natural form but also promotes optimal growth, enabling it to establish new roots and flourish.

This is a blooming size mounted in wood, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!.

As a captivating member of the Cattleya alliance, the Meiracyllium trinasutum var. alba is a botanical treasure that elevates your orchid collection to new heights. Its unique growth habit, aromatic blooms, and enchanting alba variant make it a cherished addition for collectors and enthusiasts alike. Delve into the world of miniature orchids and embrace the allure of the 'Hihimanu' – a living masterpiece that embodies nature's elegance and beauty.
