    Default Poneorchis graminifolia update

    This species is native to rocky mountainous areas of Japan. It is a tuberous terrestrial that stays dormant through the winter. I grow it in fine bark mix and keep it totally dry and cool during it's winter dormancy. The plant stands about 6" tall and it is lightly fragrant. The flower is about 1.75 cm. For the last 30 years or so breeding has brought about many beautiful cultivars. The Japanese name for the plant is UCHOORAN which means "butterfly wings orchid"

    It will bloom for about 6 weeks or so. The flowers start opening at the bottom and the first flower has been opened for close to 2 weeks now
