Introducing the Trichocentrum albococcineum, a hidden gem among orchid enthusiasts! This compact species boasts captivating fragrances and enduring blooms, making it a must-have for any orchid collection. With its distinct brown petals complemented by a captivating purplish lip, the Trichocentrum albococcineum is a rarity that is not often found in the market.

Originating from the lush regions of Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil, this miniature Oncidium relative thrives as an epiphyte around 4000 ft elevation. The inflorescence is sequential, showcasing one flower at a time, with the promise of delightful reblooms. During the summer and fall, the 2” tall flowers open successively, offering up to 5 blooms over time.

Cultivating the Trichocentrum albococcineum is a rewarding experience. Maintain a minimum night temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit in moderately bright light to ensure optimal growth. This orchid prefers a slight drying between waterings but should not be left dry for prolonged periods. A daily watering routine, especially in the absence of lingering moisture from the previous day, will keep this beauty thriving. Showcase its pendant flowers by growing it mounted, allowing its unique charm to be fully appreciated.

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

Don't miss the chance to add this rare and elusive species to your orchid collection. With its captivating fragrance, long-lasting blooms, and unique aesthetic, the Trichocentrum albococcineum is a true collector's delight. Available seasonally during spring and summer, this orchid thrives in intermediate temperatures and filtered, bright to very bright light.
