Sigmatostalix radicans is native to Brazil. It grows there epiphytically (perching plant) and lithophytically (on or in the rock) along the coast of Brazil at altitudes around 400 meters. Therefore, the approximately 12 cm tall mini orchid is perfect as a perching plant.
The night setback should be 5-6 °C for the mini orchid to start flowering. The sweet honey scent of the flowers fills the entire terrarium. Sigmatostalix radicans can cope with 6500-7000 Kelvin. The plant thrives well at 20-30 °C, making it suitable for warmer terrariums. It should be sprayed with rainwater at least twice a day. Sigmatostalix radicans grows bushy and can be propagated by dividing the stock.
