Constantia cipoensis

 (1949) Constantia-cipoensis
Genus: Constantia
Species: cipoensis
Indigenous to: Brazil

Totally awesome mini species with 1/2` tightly clustering flattened bulbs that carry 2 tiny oval bluish grey-green leaves, single showy 1` flowers are wide open and very showy and are waxy snow white with a bright yellow callus on the lip. Reputation is difficult to grow but if you know its habitat it is easy to grow- treat it like a Laelia anceps- very bright and let dry between waterings, handles temperature extremes well but likes to cool down at night- sorry to most of you Floridians and fellow deep southerners.
