The orchids of Ivan Arroyo. My orchids in Basque Country: April 2009

El paseo de entrada del Jardín Botánico de Padua

This time I present the flowering of this Trichopilia ramonensis. Already three years ago that takes with me, after I bought it through ebay from Costa Rica. At the same time as this orchid, and to reduce the cost of shipping, I also bought a Stanhopea wardii and a dense Acineta. In spite of the long journey, they arrived well, with naked roots ... After choosing a few pieces of bark of cork, I mounted the three orchids ... This orchid is hybrid, resulting from the crossing between a Trichopilia suavis and a Trichopilia marginata. / P>

Trichhopylias are little known by orchid lovers, because European catalogs have a rather restricted choice. Some of its 32 species comprising this genus, are therefore highly desirable for their regular and spectacular flowering. It belongs to the subfamily of the Epidendroidae, tribe of the Maxillarieae, subtribe of the oncidiinae. The name comes from the Greek Trichos (hair) and pilos (felt) and refers to the ciliated edge of the tip of the column. It is Dr. John Lidley who proposed as a new genus, Trichopilia in 1836. The type of species, which is also the best known, was Trichopilia tortilis Lindl.

Trichopilia is found in Central America and South America, Mexico, the Lesser Antilles, Bolivia, and southern Brazil. In their habitat, in tropical and subtropical America, trichhopylias are found on the edge of rivers that meander through the humid forest between 100 and 2500 meters above sea level. The plants cling to the trees or are semi-terrestrial.

The inflorescence, basal, arched or hanging, comes laterally between the bracts and the pseudobulb and carries between one to several flowers depending on the species. As for Trichopilia ramonensis, it carries four flowers by pseudobulb, two on each side of it. The flowers, more or less perfumed, can be of medium size (about 5 cms) or large (about 13 cms.). They are very easily distinguished by their separate petals and sepals, more or less undulating or even at right angles and above all by their trumpet-shaped lips (the lateral lobes overlap most of the time, surrounding the spine and The central lobe, which is long and extended). The sepals can be white, green, yellow, brown or red; The lip is white more or less chopped or speckled yellow or red.

As for the weed, if the trichopilia is mounted on cork, the rot problem will be eliminated if you choose this type of crop. Do not forget, you have to wrap the roots with a little sphagnum or coconut fiber. If you choose the cultivation in pot, you have to make extra holes and put drainage material in the bottom of the pot. The substrate should be made of pine bark of medium granulometry, adding sphagnum moss (more moisture), charcoal (against decay) and perlite (for extra drainage.) Choose small pots because their roots are thin. / P>

Do not forget that a thick forest blooms worse, because the pseudobulbs are tight with each other.It is better to put the kernel a little, in dome florma on the substrate.This helps to prevent decay And will also allow you to get more out of blooms, because the vast majority of species have inflorescences that tend to hang.

Maintain a relative humidity of 70-75% throughout the year, along with a good
