It is plant epiphytic , monopodial , with quite branched elongated cylindrical stem and leaves, whose inflorescences sprout stem nodules opposite the leaf base. The flowers are tiny, white, the sepals and petals free, and nectary at the back of the lip . It belongs to the species of section Campylocentrum teretes with short and thin sheets.

Catasetum uncatum

Catasetum uncatum

Native and endemic species of Brazil, in the Northeast (Pernambuco) region. Found in what remains of the Atlantic Forest. Epiphytic species of green flowers with a strong odor of camphor, pending stem 25-60 cm long with sparse flowers observed in June and bent down pseudobulbs, despite reports of plants with erect pseudobulbs. Large speckled leaves and 30 to 40cm.

Cattleya dormaniana

Cattleya dormaniana

Cattleya dormaniana ("Dorman's Cattleya") is a bifoliate Cattleya species of orchid. The diploid chromosome number of C. dormaniana has been determined as 2n = 40.

Cattleya labiata

Cattleya labiata, also known as the Crimson Cattleya or Ruby-lipped Cattleya, is the type species of Cattleya, discovered in 1818 in northeastern Brazil, in the states of Pernambuco and Alagoas. They grow to different sizes depending on the area from which they originate.

Cattleya schilleriana

Cattleya schilleriana

Cattleya schilleriana Rchb.f. takes its name from its appearance in collections first given in 1857, in Hamburg, Germany in the collection of Consul Schiller . At the time, the plant had been brought from Bahia , and initially it was thought to be a natural hybrid between Cattleya aclandiae Lindley and Cattleya guttata Lindley ( Cattleya tigrina ). Today it is considered extinct in nature.

Cattleya tenuis

Cattleya tenuis

Cattleya tenuis (the "Slender-stemmed Cattleya") is a species of orchid. It shares the rarely used common name of Easter orchid with C. mossiae and C. schroederae

Cattleya velutina

Cattleya velutina is a seldom seen species from the Brazilian bifoliate group. Flowers have an amber base color and are covered with red dots. Some say the beautifully marked lip with its magenta lines leading to a bright yellow patch serve as a landing strip for pollinating bees.

Cattleya warneri

Cattleya warneri (the "Warner's Cattley's orchid") is a labiate Cattleya species of orchid. The diploid chromosome number of C. warneri has been determined as 2n = 40

Constantia cipoensis

Constantia cipoensis

Constantia cipoensis is a miniature sized, Brazilian, cool growing, epiphytic species endemic to the Serra do Cipo in Minas Gerais found on bushes of the genus Vellozia at elevations of 1400 meters with orbicular, flattened, rugose pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, small, ovate, rounded apically leaf that blooms from the winter through spring in nature and fall in cultivation on a apical, sessile, single flowered inflorescence that carries a large flower for the size of the plant. It is said to be quite difficult to cultivate but does best mounted on tree fern or cork in airy, cool, humid, dappled shady conditions that allow it to dry out just a bit between waterings.

Phragmipedium lindleyanum

Phragmipedium lindleyanum

Phragmipedium lindleyanum is a species in the family Orchidaceae, found in Venezuela and northern Brazil. There is much controversy about the variety called sargentianum: most Brazilian taxonomists prefer to classify this variety as a separate species. It's simple plant with inflorescence with few flowers, while claiming to be lindleyanum variety multiflora with inflorescence branched.
