The Mystacidium Capense is an epiphytic orchid found on trees in the warm, drier woodlands of Southern Africa and blooms in a mass of white flowers at the beginning of summer. The funds raised from the sale of this lot will go to benefit The Endangered Cape Orchid Project. An initiative launched in 2017 as part of the Cape Orchid Society's Diamond Jubilee, the ECOP aims to repopulate key areas of the Cape Floristic Region of the Western Cape with endangered orchid species.
