Availability: 1 In Stock
Restrepia wageneri is a species of orchid endemic to northwestern Venezuela. The lateral sepals are fused into a large synsepal, with a small labellum on top of it. The lateral petals often resemble antennae, and usually have a small bulge at their tips. The narrow dorsal sepal also has a bulge at its tip. They are most commonly yellow and/or red orchids, often with the colours alternating in striped patterns. The flower stem emerges from the base of the leaf, and bears a single flower. They don't bloom seasonally, as most species are equatorial; larger specimens can bloom year-round with proper care.
