Description

Gastrochilus sororius is an epiphytic orchid species originally found in the forests of Asia. This species is noted for its adaptability to various environments, making it an apt choice for terrarium cultivation. Maintaining this orchid within a terrarium requires an environment with high humidity and indirect light. Good air circulation is also vital to maintain plant health and prevent condensation. The plant thrives in moderate temperatures and should be protected from temperature extremes. As an epiphytic plant, Gastrochilus sororius does not require traditional soil and can be placed on pieces of bark or specialised terrarium soils that provide good drainage.

The blooms of Gastrochilus sororius are distinctive in shape and colouration, displaying a range of soft yellows and browns with variable accents that give each specimen its individual character. The flower structure is complex and typical for orchids, with a prominent labellum serving as a visual lure for pollinators. Cultivating such a plant in a terrarium offers enthusiasts the chance to integrate a piece of natural beauty and diversity into their homes. Furthermore, incorporating this orchid into a terrarium can enrich the microclimate and add value to the entire terrarium landscape.
