General Information and Care: Restrepia brachypus is one of the easiest Restrepias to grow and flower in a terrarium. Many times, this species will flower for months on end! This is considered a medium species for a terrarium with the size generally being around 4-8â in height and width. As with all of the other Restrepias that Glass Box Tropicals offers, this one does best mounted epiphytically, meaning mounted on a piece of wood or rock in your hardscape. It should be noted that this is seemingly one of the most tolerant species of Restrepia that Glass Box Tropicals offers. This species is great for a beginner!
