The Rodriguezia decora was from the 2008 SCOS summer potting party. I knew it would be a challenge to grow because the two-pseudobulb piece I got had a 4-inch rhizome. I mounted it on a large piece of cork and hoped for the best. Aside from the rambling growth habit, it has been a quite satisfactory plant. It has grown and bloomed every year.
This plant is mounted on a 14x7-inch piece of cork bark. Rodriguezia decora grows in Brazil in cool to warm mountain forests and grasslands. Fragrant, bright light.There are ten pseudobulbs. The genus Rodriguezia (Rdza) contains about 30 species mostly found in Brazil.
After I take the plant to show and tell I am going to remove the two pseudobulbs that have grown off the mount. This will become the next free plant so watch for it to be announced in November.
