Cymbidiella falcigera is a species endemic to Madagascar


Plant blooms in the spring with several fragrant 8 cm flowers. Plant is difficult to transplant from the wild due to rhizomes which often get infected with fungal disease and roots dry out quickly when cut.


The plant is found growing in tropical forest on Raphia ruffia palm trees in Madagascar at 100 to 1450 meters in elevation.


Plant should be grown in well drain medium such as medium bark, tree fern or full sphagnum moss. Plants are usually grown in baskets. Keep plant in intermediate to warm temperatures in semi shady conditions. Keep mix moist but not wet and reduce watering a little bit in the winter.
