Ada chlorops is an epiphytic orchid from the genus Ada.

DescriptionEdit

Plants bloom in the fall with five to ten 2.5 cm wide flowers. Flowers are slightly fragrant.

DistributionEdit

Plants are found growing in the montane forest of Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama at elevations of 1000 to 2000 meters

CultureEdit

Grow in cool to warm conditions with moderate light during Summer, and more light during Winter. During the growing period, high humidity is essential for successful cultivation. The pot medium should not dry out completely when growing, but sufficient drainage is needed to avoid root rot. At all time mist the plants frequently, if possibly in the morning to mimic the morning dew of the natural habitat. Plants should be potted in a well drain medium such as medium fir bark.
