Discover the fascinating orange-red-flowering miniature orchid from the rainforests of Venezuela and Colombia - Maxillaria Sophronitis! Mostly growing as an epiphyte on trees in dense humid forests. Its unique flowers, which come in dark orange or orange-red are extremely durable and can bloom throughout the year.

Caring for this orchid is straightforward. A well-draining, moisture-retaining substrate is ideal. Mineral substrate such as a mixture of lava, pumice, and akadama is excellent and significantly reduces maintenance. This natural form blooms regularly and brings much joy to your orchid collection!
