Ornithocephalus Gladiatus is a miniature, hot-to-cool epiphyte distributed in Venezuela, Brazil, Peru and Bolivia.


It’s also named Sword-Shaped Lip Ornithocephalus due to its fan-shaped leaves, which looks like Psygmorchis Pusilla. The main differences between Psygmorchis Pusilla and Ornithocephalus Gladiatus is that the latter has darker greenish leaves and flowers.


The Sword-Shaped Lip Ornithocephalus grows better mounted on tree fern or wood piece. Please give your orchid partial shade and humid conditions.
