Restrepia trichoglossa grows in Panama and northern South America in a wide altitude range where there is a wet and cool cloud forest. It blooms successively in summer and fall. The genus Restrepia (Rstp) contains 30 or 40 species found from Mexico to Northern Argentina. Their culture is similar to small Pleurothallis species and grow well with small pots, high humidity and shady conditions.
