    This is quite common in the Philippines. I got mine from an ambulant vendor who gets these orchids from the wild. Hope you find one in your area.

    Hello Geoff. Well, that visitor has to come for breakfast because the flowers only open fully in the early morning sun. Around midmorning they begin to close. And that's about it until the next flowering.

    Thanks Jojo. This is one of the easiest species orchids to grow. I even withhold fertilizer because even without it, the plant grows quite quickly and spreads around the tree trunk.

Not only are the blooms quite sizable- around 3 cm across for P. unguiculatum and 5 cm for C. simplicissima- but they are intensely sweetly scented. The frequent flowering of these species compensates the fugacious nature of the flowers.
    You are right, Walter. That very fugacity makes each flowering an event to look forward to. Still, I often end up with pictures of spent flowers rather than those in full bloom: the price of waking up late. There is still some residual flowering though in subsequent days, a consolation for me.

    Thanks, Andrew. Yes, this one is special. Been in bloom for about two months now. June to October is the rainy season in the Philippines and these jungle guys love all the humidity they can get.

    The original posting preceded my membership ,now that I do see it, I think it has charm and character . If one came my way, I'd snap it up. Maybe if that Phillipines nursery comes to Europe next year ( European Orchid Conference at Budapest, Hungary, late April - I have registered - see you there ? ) I can get one - but I expect there will be a lot on my list and a limited number of Euros to spend....

    Geoff, I doubt if they grow it in nurseries in my country. As I posted before, I got mine from a vendor who gets his stock from the wild or whatever he may have in his small garden in his village. Big nurseries here usually grow the waling-waling (Euanthe) and a big number of vandas and the vandaceous tribes, and dendrobiums. A lot also offer phals though on a lesser scale. I've rarely encountered any big nursery propagating indigenous Philippine orchids for commercial purposes.

    You see, this one has also been around my grandma's garden forever, attached to a "chico" tree. The sweet brown chico fruit get more attention than this orchid. LOL

    Thank you Mojamoja. Get yourself one. I'm sure you'll find a lot of this kind growing in your locality.
