General Information and Care: Porroglossum hystrix is an extremely interesting species for terrariums. The leaves are typically 3-4” in length and about ¾” wide. The flowers and the racemose are what really make this plant stand apart from others though. The racemases are 4-6” in length and extremely densely pubescent. The flowers are about ⅝” and open successively on the same racemose. They are a gorgeous cream color with yellow and white highlights.

4 of 5 Good plant, little small. August 14, 2019
Reviewer: Sean Moomaw from LaVista, NE United States  
I've only ordered two orchids from here (this one being my second) and I'm satisfied with both. They are both healthy plants with new growth and they arrived still damp and packaged well. The only thing I don't like is that most of the plants are indeed divisions, so they're a little small for the price. I don't mind it really but it's something to keep in mind when purchasing. The hystrix I got from here is only half the size of some others available for purchase. Just something to consider. Other than that I am happy with the plant I received and hopefully this one doesnt go through pleurothallid death syndrome like my first one!
