Orchid Species: Aganisia cyanea

(This name is currently accepted by Kew.)

Aganisia cyanea is an orchid species identified by (Lindl.) G.Nicholson in 1869.
Aganisia (Agn.)
(name currently accepted by Kew)
(Lindl.) G.Nicholson
ORIGIN: A small sized, hot growing epiphytic plant with fusiform, slightly compressed, rugose pseudobulbs covered with papery bracts and with a single to two coriaceous, oblong-lanceolate, short petiolate leaves, a visible, creeping, slender rhizome and a 12 [30 cm] long, basal, slender inflorescence that is slightly longer than the leaves and arises from the base of a mature pseudobulb and is erect to arching, carries loosely few to several [to 10] showy, fragrant flowers and blooms in the late winter until summer mostly in the late spring. They are found in Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil at elevations of 100 to 500 meters.

DESCRIPTION: Small sized, hot growing epiphyte and rarely terrestrial with an ascending growth habit and as such does well on tree fern or cork slabs. In nature these plants are often found semi-submerged by flooding rivers in the Amazon area with only the flowers above the water line. This orchid will thrive if given a hot, humid environment with lots of shade or dappled sunlight and room for the plant to expand. Daily mistings while in growth are greatly appreciated.

FLOWER SIZE: 2 1/2 inches [6.25 cm] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
