Aerides odorata (Sarawak form)- 365 days of orchids – day 1043

The highlight of yesterday’s trek up Mount Singai was the wonderful white and yellow form of Aerides odorata. Plants were growing in shade amongst tall trees at 100m altitude. The first photo shows one of several flowering plants with the characteristic long curved spur.

we have seen the species before in the Himalayas in Sikkim and Assam but always pink forms like our own clone at school.

we grow the species in our warm Asia section in a large basket where we water it throughout the year which closely matches its natural habitat as we found yesterday.
