Introducing the exquisite Microcoelia cornuta, a botanical marvel hailing from the lush montane forests of the Comoros and northwestern Madagascar. This epiphytic wonder thrives in the canopy, adorning twigs and branches with its elongate stem, festooned with delicate roots.

In spring, it unveils its splendor with a 2.8 to 6" [7 to 15 cm] long, 4 to 20 flowered inflorescence, each bloom measuring a mere .1 to .2" [2 to 3 mm]. The floral display is a testament to nature's artistry, with sepals and petals adorning themselves in pristine white, occasionally blushed with hints of pink, brown, or green.

Cultivating this botanical gem is an endeavor of patience and care. As it photosynthesizes through its roots, mounting it on smooth pieces of wood—freshwater driftwood or bogwood—is paramount for its well-being. The choice of substrate matters, with preference leaning towards smooth-barked branches of trees like the silver birch, offering a symbiotic embrace for this epiphytic marvel.

Moderate to light shade provides the ideal environment, while intermediate temperatures foster robust growth. Humidity plays a pivotal role, especially during active growth phases, necessitating a moist ambiance to thrive.

This is a blooming size imported mounted in a 2" x 4" plastic slab or wood; about 1 to 2 years to bloom; Grown from seed; Limited!

Microcoelia cornuta, though rare in cultivation, is a treasure deserving wider appreciation. While diminutive, its flowers are densely packed, exuding a captivating radiance with a glistening texture. With conscientious attention to these nuances, the Microcoelia cornuta unfurls its elegance, a testament to nature's boundless grace.
