    Jervis, here is the second of two threads I have posted of this Philippine species orchid. There is an even earlier thread entiitled "Aeridinae Pteroceras Unguiculatum" where I uploaded the picture of the fruit or seed pod of this remarkable orchid.

    what a cool looking orchid! i've never seen this before. it would probably not do well here without a greenhouse (appears to be a hot grower), but darn if i ever see one i'm getting it just to try! this looks very much like a phal plant-wise, i would like to get some of the more exotic orchids that grow similar looking to phals... very cool the way the old flower stems rebloom later on. i like plants that do that!

    You're right. Being a native of the Philippines, it loves hot, humid conditions but, unlike vandas, it prefers the shade. It does look like some of our native phals, the form I mean. But it has fleshier leaves than those of a phal and it grows much faster. And I don't think this would grow well in a pot like a phal. I just wish its flowers would last as long as a phal.

    I didn't do that post. Somehow the girl who covered for me when I was on vacation got into my account. Probably because I forgot to sign off. Was no where near a computer for 9 days.

    Glad to hear that, Kim. Actually, I wanted to react to that right away but I counted to ten and then had second thoughts. Oh well, it's alright now.

    It's OK, Kim. It wasn't your fault. Thank you for taking the time to post an explanation. It put my mind at ease.
