About Orchid Miniatures

Miniature Orchids Miniature orchids are for those who have very limited space to grow a plant in. They are less than in height, excluding inflorescence or the cluster of blooms on a branch. These orchidplants can reach maturity in a small pot, about 3 inches in diameter.

Some of the favorite miniatures to grow are the following:

  • Epidendrum longipetalum. The plant blooms gorgeous creamy green flowers sequentially for months. The delicately dangling petals look like dainty ballerinas.
  • Epidendrum porpax. This is quick growing and blooms immediately into amazing-looking flowers.
  • Gongora horichiana. This is less than half the size of most orchids. They grow in small pots and produce grapes of tan flowers.
  • Oncidium cheirophorum. This plant is always a favorite among avid orchidists. It blooms into branches of multiple clear yellow flowers and gives a sunny accent anywhere it is.
  • Pleurothallis caligularis. This small plant produces pretty half-inch-sized red flowers with a white lip.
