In 2017 this wonderful plant won Best in Show at the RHS London Orchid show. I am delighted that we now have small plants available at the shop.
The species is native to the Himalayas and we have seen some wonderful specimen plants flowering in the forests of Sikkim at around 2000m altitude in cool moist monsoon forest. One plant in particular had completely enveloped the trunk of a large tree – a real site.
The photo shows a close view of flowers on a plant near Tinkitam in Sikkim.
