What is Brasso Epidendrum Green Dragon?
Brasso epidendrum Green Dragon is a hybrid orchid that was first bred by the famous orchid breeder Jost/Rumrill in 1969.
It is a cross between Epi. Magnoliae and B. Nodosa, two species of orchids.
This makes Brasso epidendrum Green Dragon a “primary hybrid” because it is a cross between two species, it’s not a hybrid of one species crossed with itself.
Orchids are often divided into three groups: terrestrials, lithophytes, and epiphytes.
Terrestrials grow on land; lithophytes grow on rocks; and epiphytes grow in trees.
Brasso epidendrum Green Dragon falls into the category of epiphytic orchids.
The Brasso epidendrums are known for their small cute flowers and good growth habits.
Orchid enthusiasts love them because they’re easy to care for!
They can grow up to 1.5 to 2 feet tall under the right conditions and are generally resistant to disease and pests.
How to grow and maintain Brasso Epidendrum Green Dragon:
Brasso Epidendrum prefers bright, indirect sunlight. If placed in direct sun, the leaves will burn very quickly.
It’s important not to place it in a window where the sun can shine directly on it all day long.
Brasso Epidendrum should be watered when the soil feels dry halfway down the pot.
Be careful not to overwater this plant or it will rot and die. If you’re unsure if your plant needs water, wait until morning and see if any water has been absorbed into the soil overnight before watering again.
Brasso Epidendrum does best in high humidity environments like greenhouses or bathrooms where humidity levels can be controlled easily with humidifiers or vaporizers such as Evaporative Cooling Systems (ECS).
Which use evaporative cooling technology which can lower temperatures by up to 30% without using electricity or refrigerants making them highly energy efficient & cost effective compared to air conditioning systems which consume huge amounts of electricity & refrigerants every year which contributes significantly towards global warming causing climate change worldwide.
For a plant like the Brasso Epidendrum Green Dragon, it’s important to have a high-quality potting mix with plenty of nutrients in order to ensure that your plant remains healthy throughout its life.
The Brasso Epidendrum Green Dragon is an epiphyte, meaning that it grows on other plants rather than in soil.
Its roots are typically wrapped around the branches of its host tree, which means that they don’t have access to nutrients in the soil.
That’s where a good potting mix comes into play: it provides all of the nutrients that your plant needs for its growth and development.
Choosing your own mix can be difficult because there are so many options out there but we’ve got you covered!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 20% Sphagnum Peat Moss (moss)
- 20% Perlite (lightweight volcanic rock)
- 15% Vermiculite (expanded mica)
- 25% Peat Moss (dried peat)
- 10% Organic Compost
Brasso Epidendrum Green Dragon orchids prefer temperatures between 25°C – 28°C (77°F – 82°F) during the day, with a drop down to 15°C – 20°C (59°F – 68°F) at night time.
It is important that you keep your plant away from drafts or direct sunlight so its leaves do not burn or become damaged by ultraviolet radiation from sunlight for too long.
It is also best if you keep the humidity level between 60%-70% during the day time by misting them once every few days or so.

When should you repot your Brasso Epidendrum Green Dragon?
If your plant has outgrown its pot, it’s time to re-pot it. If you notice that roots are coming out of the drainage holes, or if the roots have grown around the edges of the pot and are starting to wrap around themselves, it’s time to move your plant into a bigger container.
The Brasso Epidendrum Green Dragon is a beautiful plant with a flower that is both bold and delicate.
It’s easy to care for, making it an excellent choice for beginners who are looking to add some color to their homes or offices.
