  • From Tom Bajza post, 2018-06-23. Corybas geminigibbus - the smallest terrestrial orchid I do know, and most definitely on of the most interesting ones too. These so called 'Helmet' orchids are fairly easy to grow if provided with intermediate temperatures and constant very high humidity. I suggest to grow these either in any enclosed container with lid on or inside terrarium. They do well in shade or bright shade, under LED lights. Specific growing cycle starts with fuzzy sprout, one leaf, bloom, new rhizome with new tuber, and dormancy again. Within a few years your colony will grow dramatically
