    Default Phaius tankervilliae

    is opening now. 25 spikes this year. Not too many (last year were 21 or 23), but still... It grows like a weed 24/7 outside without any special care.

    The plant is really huge. I cannot take it to any orchid show. Anyway, I do love this monster.
    A nice addition to my porch.

    Phaius did overgrow the pot in 2009, so I had to repot it.
