Corybas pictus is from Sumatra, Java, Borneo, and Peninsula Malaysia. In the wild this species inhabits the forest floor in wet and humid forest at elevations between 700 and 2,000 metres.


Description and Key Features:

Corybas are rarely seen in cultivation, with flowers that are just too bizarre to articulate. The leaves are green with silver venation and measure 1-3.5 cm. The tubers are tiny, 4-6 mm. Flowers are 2.5 cm. This plant is meticulously grown in a pot, this flowering-size specimen promises to be a distinctive addition to your greenhouse, terrarium or paludarium.


Care Instructions:

Grow Corybas pictus in a pot with a cover to maintain high humidity, air circulation is rarely important and is more likely to adversely affect the plant than benefit it. Don’t let plants and media stay sodden in water as that may adversely affect the plant and give plants low/minimal light. Provide water from the bottom and let the moss soak the water and maintain an intermediate or warm greenhouse/terrarium with night temperatures of 16-22 degrees and daytime temperatures of 22-31 degrees.
