Aerides crassifolia- 365 days of orchids – day 911

This beautiful orchid is another start from the Malvern Show.

Aerides crassifolia is found in open warm forest in South East Asia and is a species we have seed growing in Loas at around 900m on large trees in good light.

The flowers are large and spread out for an Aerides species and the leaves are thick and leathery (hence the name). We have found that the species from Warm Asian forests actually prefers growing in our Warm Americas section amoungst Cattleyas hanging high in the roof in good light and drying out between waterings in a basket.
