    Description:

    This orchid is rarely found for sale in the U.S. A native to SE Asia, this deciduous species quickly grows into a 4' plant that resembles bamboo with its oppositely alternating blue-green leaves. The fragrant, crystalline white flowers have a hairy, burnt orange lip and are held on a terminal inflorescence of 5-10 flowers. Here is a link to the amazing website orchidspecies.com for more info and pics.


    The plant grows very quickly starting early spring but rarely produces more than one cane per year. In the fall the leaves will fall off and the plant will remain dormant all winter. We withhold water until the new growth is 2" tall the following spring. After the new growth reaches a foot or so we cut off the old cane and lay it flat on a moist substrate and eventually babies will grow at the nodes.

    Water moderately during growth period, very bright indirect light, cold (winter)-warm (smr)
