Experience the charm of Rhyncattleanthe Chief Glory 'Red Ant', a delightful miniature orchid that boasts large, striking blooms on a compact plant. This orchid is perfect for collectors and enthusiasts who appreciate beauty in a small package.

Features:

  • Bloom Size: Despite its tiny stature, this plant produces impressively large blooms.
  • Color: The flowers exhibit a vibrant, captivating red that will stand out in any collection.

Cultivation Tips:

Light:

  • Partial Shade: This orchid thrives in partial shade. Aim for bright, indirect light to ensure optimal growth and blooming. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Temperature:

  • Warm: Maintain a warm environment for your Rhyncattleanthe Chief Glory 'Red Ant'. Ideal temperatures range from 70-85°F (21-29°C) during the day and 60-70°F (15-21°C) at night.

Watering:

  • Regular, Dry Between: Water your orchid regularly, but allow the potting medium to dry out between waterings. This mimics its natural environment and helps prevent root rot. Typically, watering once a week is sufficient, but this can vary depending on your local climate and the potting medium used.

Additional Care Tips:

  • Humidity: Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, around 50-70%. This can be achieved by placing a humidity tray under the plant or using a room humidifier.
  • Fertilizing: Feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding frequency to once a month during the rest period (fall and winter).
  • Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix, such as a blend of bark, perlite, and charcoal, to provide adequate airflow to the roots.
  • Repotting: Repot every 2-3 years, or when the potting medium breaks down, to ensure healthy root growth and prevent rot.

This is a blooming sze in a 4" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!
