Oeceoclades Chameleon is an orchid hybrid originated by L. Glicenstein in 2012. It is a cross of Oeceoclades maculata x Oeceoclades gracilllima. It is considered a "primary hybrid" because it is a cross between two species.
Oeceoclades are terrestrial orchids from tropical forests in Africa and tolerate a dry season. Some have been introduced to North, Central and South America where they have naturalized and are considered invasive weeds. They have magnificent foliage and grow under a foot tall or so. They should be grown in loose and very well drained substrate and we think they will be wonderful new candidates for tropical habitats under optimal conditions.
