Malaxis latifolia (syn. Dienia ophrydis)
This terrestrial species is native to South East Asia, and can be found in a variety of growing habitats. Medium to bright diffused light only, to avoid burning the soft pleated foliage. The plant goes dormant each winter with only bare bulbs visible above the media, and then new growth with new leaves and blooms spikes emerges in mid to late spring. While dormant water very very sparingly and do not fertilize. Water can be increased after new growth emerges and during the warmer months the root system should not be allowed to dry out. Flower stems are long and upright with new buds appearing yellow and green and turning orange to red as they open and mature. The rainbow effect is very striking and goes on for months.
Instead of dividing our mother plants we wait for them to drop 'corms' or keikis which we then plant into their own pots.
Offered here is a nice sized plant with multiple bulbs growing in a 4" pot. The plant pictured is the exact one you are bidding on. Bloom photo shows this plant in bloom.
