Brassavola nodosa 'Mickey Mouse' is a miniature version of a species that is normally much larger. Brassavola nodosa ordinarily has terete (pencil-like) growths that are around 15 cm long and has flowers about 9 cm in size. This clone is less than half that size.
Brassavola nodosa ranges across Mexico and Central America, the Caribbean, and northern South America. It is very fragrant at night , hence the nickname, "Lady of the Night." It is often used in hybridizing and imparts both its spidery shape and good color to its offspring.
