Introducing Trichoglottis amesiana - an exquisite orchid species native to the lush landscapes of the Philippines, specifically found in the southern region of the Manila Bay, nestled within the province of Cavite. Renowned for its graceful pendulous stems and vibrant blooms, cultivating Trichoglottis amesiana brings the beauty of the tropics right into your home.

Description: Trichoglottis amesiana is a medium to large-sized epiphytic orchid, boasting elongated stems adorned with alternating, leathery leaves. Its blooms, borne on short inflorescences, captivate with their colors ranging from fiery reds to sunny yellows and pristine whites. The unique floral structure, featuring concave petals and a distinct three-lobed lip, adds to its allure.

Cultivation Tips:

Light: Ensure a filtered and dispersed light level of 15000-25000 lux, avoiding direct exposure to harsh midday sun. Adequate air circulation is essential for healthy growth and blooming. Adjust light levels if necessary to promote flowering.

Temperature: Maintain a thermophilic environment, with summer temperatures averaging 29-31°C during the day and 22°C at night, providing a daily fluctuation of 7-9°C. In winter, daytime temperatures should range from 28-29°C, with nighttime temperatures around 19-20°C, maintaining a daily difference of 9-10°C.

Humidity: During the active growing seasons of summer to autumn, aim for humidity levels of 80-85%, gradually decreasing to 70-75% in winter and spring.

Substrate and Repotting: Grow Trichoglottis amesiana in hanging pots or slatted baskets filled with loose, well-draining substrate. Avoid overcrowding roots and allow them to freely grow and explore their environment. Repot only when necessary, providing support for elongated stems if required.

Watering: During active growth from late spring to autumn, water regularly, adjusting frequency as autumn approaches. Gradually reduce watering in autumn to mimic natural conditions, resuming stronger watering in spring.

Fertilization: Fertilize weekly with 1/4-1/2 of the recommended orchid fertilizer dosage during active growth. Opt for fertilizers with reduced nitrogen and increased phosphorus content in autumn to support abundant flowering in the following season.

Rest Period: In winter, reduce watering but avoid allowing the plant to completely dry out. Limit or cease fertilization until spring, gradually increasing watering as the plant prepares for another season of growth and blooming.

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

Experience the enchanting beauty of Trichoglottis amesiana as it graces your living space with its elegant presence and vibrant blooms. With proper care and attention to its specific requirements, this orchid will reward you with breathtaking displays year after year.
