Brassia verrucosa are known for their characteristic long and spreading tepals, which lend them the common name spider orchid... this intriguing plant is classified in the subtribe Oncidiinae.
The flowers are showy with the largest measuring 20cm long and slightly scented of black pepper. Sepals and petals are pale green spotted with dark brown, dark green, or reddish brown. A showstopper of a plant to add to your collection.
In the family Oncidiinae - Oncidiums, Odontoglossums and their hybrids are another orchid which will grow well alongside your Cymbidiums. They thrive outdoors in shady to dappled light - ensuring they get plenty of light will ensure that flowering will not be inhibited. Many do well on slabs, where they benefit from the rapid alteration of wet to dry if they are watered daily and dry fast. Additionally, most do very well in an intermediate greenhouse; with a minimum night temperature of 12°C as average.
