Introducing the Trichoglottis tomentosa, a mesmerizing climbing orchid species hailing from the vibrant landscapes of Thailand. This medium-sized, warm to hot growing monopodial epiphyte is a true delight for orchid enthusiasts, featuring elongated stems adorned with alternate, oblong to elliptic leaves that exude an unmistakable touch of elegance, making it a must-have addition to any orchid collection.

For optimal growth and a stunning display, provide your Trichoglottis tomentosa with a totem or post for climbing, with a tree fern being the ideal support structure. Once established, this resilient orchid doesn't require a traditional pot or container, making it a perfect candidate for showcasing its beauty in a shallow basket with a central totem, especially for those who prefer benching.

To encourage flourishing growth and a cascading spectacle of its elongated stems, ensure the plant is exposed to maximum sunlight while maintaining a warm to intermediate environment. During the growing season, be generous with water and fertilizer to provide the necessary nutrients for your Trichoglottis tomentosa to thrive.

One of the unique features of this orchid is its ability to form a clump when it outgrows its totem. Simply trim the top and position it at the base of the totem to witness a breathtaking, clustered display, adding even more allure to this already captivating species.

Native to Vietnam and Thailand, the Trichoglottis tomentosa thrives in semi-deciduous and deciduous dry lowland forests, as well as savannah-like woodlands at elevations ranging from sea-level to 700 meters. In the summer, the plant produces single, sessile flowers ranging from 4/5 to 1 1/4 inches (2 to 3 cm) in size, held close to the stem, creating an enchanting and visually captivating display.

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

Bring the exotic beauty of Thailand into your home with the Trichoglottis tomentosa—an orchid species that effortlessly combines ease of cultivation with breathtaking aesthetics. Elevate your orchid collection today and watch as this climbing wonder transforms your space into a tropical paradise.
