General Information and Care: Porroglossum hystrix is an extremely interesting species for terrariums. The leaves are typically 3-4" in length and about ¾" wide. The flowers and the racemose are what really make this plant stand apart from others though. The racemases are 4-6" in length and extremely densely pubescent. The flowers are about ⅝" and open successively on the same racemose. They are a gorgeous cream color with yellow and white highlights.
