Specifications
Cleisostoma arietinum 'S'
This 'miniature' orchid is perfect for your terrarium! Because Cleisostoma arietinum grows upon rocks and trees in nature, it is also possible to attach it to a shelf any object at home.

These spring from an odd looking stalk with fleshy, needle shaped leaves.

Plant care

Cleisostoma arietinum can be grown using artificial light, but make sure your terrarium lamp is at a distance of at least 10 centimetre from your plant. If you don't use artificial light, make sure the orchid is in a light place, but avoiding direct sunlight. The humidity of its environment should be quite high; around 80%. The ideal temperature for Cleisostoma arietinum is around 25⁰C and shouldn't get below 15⁰C or above 30⁰C. Water the plant by spraying it if you have it attached to a surface. This should be done three to five times a week, using rainwater or distilled water. You should water it when the substrate has dried slightly. A proper airflow, together with the right humidity will help prevent infections and disease. If you want to keep Cleisostoma arietinum in a pot, using orchid-mix will be suitable. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. This orchid doesn't need any or only a little fertilizing. Old flowers can be cut from the plant.
