Mormolyca ringens

Right now I am going an a size and emotion combination. Having this Mormolyca ringens in bloom has made me wonder if I shouldn't be more precise about the criteria for being part of the collection.

Mormolyca ringens grows from Mexico down into Central America. It is warm to hot growing and does well in a basket. The plant can flower all spring and summer. The genus Mormolyca (Mlca) contains 6 small species growing in Central America and northern South America.

This plant is in bark over peanuts in a 2 1/2-inch plastic pot. There are six pseudobulbs and it stands five inches above the pot. The flower open now is the third flower from this pseudobulb.

  1. I get notifications when you post something new. I don't get any when you or somebody answers to a post for ex.. So my way of trying to keep track is to hold on to the first message and go back after some days or so and look what is going on.
