General Information and Care: Dryadella cristata is a great miniature orchid for terrarium culture. The leaves typically will not exceed 2.5” and usually stay in the 2” range. They are a pale green, though under higher light can take on some pink and purple. This species also seems to be fine in lower light though, just a bit slower growing. The flowers on this species are quite amazing to see. They emerge from the base of the leaves and are a base of a yellow translucent coloration with pink stripe highlights.

5 of 5 Better than the picture January 27, 2017
Reviewer: Dan from Coeur dAlene, ID United States  
Orchid is small and a good size for any vivarium. It is extremely well mounted on a small piece of cork bark (~ 1.25"W x 2.5"T for perspective of plant size). Was really impressed with the shipping and packaging too  The plant was shipped with hard goods and insects, but wrapped in protective batting and newspaper and arrived in perfect condition.  The one that I got looks even better than the one pictured. Really happy with this purchase and looking forward to seeing how it does in my new setup.
