This is in bloom now, but the images are from a previous blooming. This was described in 2001.
I like that one a lot.
Fantastic. Is it difficult to grow?
I do like Trichoceros!
And mine need less light than they are getting.
I too love this genus...thanks for sharing Marni
Chuck, I find them very easy. This one is growing intermediate (56F night) but I have grown it a bit cooler too. All of the species I have do well with their roots in the air: laying on the bench, stuffed in a basket with no media or mounted loosely on cork or a hardwood. I water them much less than other mounted plants so it will be several days between watering. I have seen a different species growing in Ecuador in sandy leaf litter, but if I put a Trichoceros in a pot with media it dies.
I have also one sp in spike, longer one, wonder it was posible antenifer or something but have to wair to be sure...
Have the same opinion easy plant if mounted, and dont worry about watering too much.
