Brassia verrucosa

Brassia verrucosa
Found growing from Mexico to Venezuela, Brassia verrucosa is a warm to cool growing epiphyte and rarely terrestrial that produces these beautiful long to semi-arching spikes that give its flowers on a spray of green spider-like flowers.

With quite a musky scent, as the day warms, it oozes out to the garden. Some confusion with Brassia brachiata, supposely another species that is found in Peru and neighbooring areas has got some light with Kew assuming it as a synonym of verrucosa. Therefore, its range of distribution is now larger.

Care

Brassia verrucosa plants prefere a semi-shaded location with some morning sun. I water them twice a week, not really giving them any winter rest. I feed them only once a month. I prefer baskets which are filled with a perlite-bark-sphagnum mix that suits perfectly their needs.
