Telipogon ariasii is an epiphytic orchid in the genus Telipogon.
Plant blooms in the spring with one to two 5 cm wide flowers.
Plant is found in the cloud forest of Junin Peru at elevations around 2800 meters.
Plants are difficult to grow in cultivation because of their difficulty in estabilishment. They require shade and cool to intermediate temperatures depending on the species. Plants require high air circulation to prevent fungal rot and constant misting. Water twice a week during the winter and heavily mist during the summer. Plants can be grown in sphagnum moss but are usually mounted. When mounting keep the plant loose on the slab as they do not like their roots bounded. Keep humidity high.
