Habenaria Rhodocheila ‘Orange’
This is a wonderful Southeast Asian terrestrial orchid that grows in deciduous forests. The flowers are a fluorescent orange, and almost neon-like in color. These plants will go dormant after blooming and slowly lose all of the foliage in the winter. Once dormant, a tuber inside the pot will rest until late spring. During dormancy, you can store the tuber in a slightly humid environment (50 to 70 percent), watering the plants is not necessary. If the environment is very dry (under 50% humidity), spritz the surface with water once a week to keep the tuber from shriveling up completely. You should be able to water the plant and see growth emerge again sometime in the spring/ summer.
Size: Blooming Sized Tuber
