365 days of orchids – day 724 – Acampe papiliosa

The is a great diversity amongst the asian relatives of Vanda. This species produces a medium sized plant with relatively small but highly fragrant flowers.

The species is native the the Eastern Himalayas through South East Asia and we have seen the species growing in lowland forests in Southern Laos where plants experience hot wet summers and cooler dryer winters followed by a hot dry spring. In the wild plants develop into impressive clumps with branched stems and we are waiting for our plant to grow in a similar way so that it will give a bigger impact.
