Kefersteinia tolimensis

Kefersteinia tolimensis - Photo by Richard LindbergThe genus Kefersteinia (Kefst) contains 36 species growing in low, tropical forests. Should not be allowed to dry out.

Kefersteinia tolimensis grows in Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela. Warm to hot growing, low light, even watering.

I got this plant from the raffle table at the Napa Valley Orchid Society. It has grown well for me and has been divided a couple of times.

It has just started blooming for the year. It will bloom all summer and grow quite quickly for an orchid. The spikes have one flower and are low, but they are visible and interesting.
