Description

Dracula chimaera is from Columbia. This species inhabits montane cloud forests at elevations between 1,400 and 2,400 metres. Inflorescences are pendent, measure 20-60cm and bear a couple of successive flowers that each measure 20cm from tail to tail. Some select clones can measure up to 60cm from tail to tail. Plants bloom during the autumn.

This is a flowering sized plant and the larger fowered clone. Grow Dracula chimaera in a net pot or basket and use loosely packed sphagnum moss as a media. Make sure plants get sufficient air movement particularly when gown in humidity above 80%; always ensure that humidity is high and give plants moderate to deep shade. Plants need to be grown wet; I grow my Dracula species sitting in water and I remove this particular species from water once spike are seen. This avoids the spikes growing downwards into the water. This species grows well in an intermediate to cool greenhouse or indoors in suitable conditions, including, a difference between day and night temperature, air movement and humidity.
