Introducing Rodriguezia lanceolata - The Stunning Orchid of the Americas!

Rodriguezia lanceolata is a remarkable species of orchid that hails from various countries across the Americas. With its delicate beauty and unique characteristics, this orchid is sure to capture the hearts of orchid enthusiasts and collectors worldwide. Nice mini with flowers that are surprisingly fragrant both day and night. They're about 1½" across and have a heavy substance to them.


  • Natural Habitat: Rodriguezia lanceolata is found in lush, montane forests across regions spanning from St. Vincent to Brazil, including Trinidad, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, the Guianas, Suriname, Peru, Ecuador, and Brazil. It thrives at altitudes ranging from 650 to 1500 meters.

  • Compact Elegance: This orchid boasts a charmingly compact form with a cluster of leathery, 4-inch leaves and dangling wiry roots. The plants are typically small-sized and caespitose, forming attractive clumps.

  • Vibrant Blooms: Rodriguezia lanceolata is a true spectacle when it blooms. Its slender spikes, reaching heights of 6 inches, are adorned with 20 to 30 brilliantly colored, rose-red flowers. Each bloom is approximately 3/4 inch in size (1.3 cm), creating a striking visual display.

  • Biannual Beauty: While these orchids can bloom throughout the year, their most impressive displays typically occur in the spring. This biannual exhibition of vibrant blossoms will leave you in awe.

Cultivation Tips: To help your Rodriguezia lanceolata thrive and witness its stunning biannual displays, follow these cultivation tips:

  1. Light: Place your orchid in bright, indirect light. In its natural habitat, it enjoys dappled sunlight filtering through the forest canopy. Aim to replicate these conditions to ensure optimal growth and flowering.

  2. Temperature: These orchids prefer a range of temperatures, from warm to cool. Maintain a temperature range that is comfortable for you, as they adapt well to fluctuations.

  3. Watering: Keep the potting mix evenly moist but not soggy. Water when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Rodriguezia lanceolata appreciates a humidity level of around 50-60%.

  4. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining, orchid-specific potting mix. Many orchid enthusiasts choose to mount these orchids as they naturally grow on smaller branches in their native habitat.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced, diluted orchid fertilizer every 2-4 weeks during the growing season (spring to early autumn). Reduce or cease fertilization during the winter months.

  6. Repotting: Repot your orchid when it becomes crowded in its current container. This is usually necessary every 2-3 years or when you notice overcrowding and diminished flowering.

  7. Pruning: Prune away dead or yellowing leaves and spent flower spikes to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's vitality.

Add this exotic beauty to your collection and let it bring the allure of the Americas into your home or garden. Enjoy the mesmerizing display of nature's artistry throughout the year!
