I opted for young plants since the blooming size ones were quite expensive. Though they are Philippine natives, the Rhynchostylis does not occur often in local plant markets and trade fairs.

    I acquired mine about two years ago for US $1.60 each.
    Over here in the U.S. that would be a great price Angel. By the way I've probably had this retusa for seven years and it does eventually get rather big I believe. My retusa is in spike now, though I don't expect buds/blooms for a while yet. AL

    That's great news, Zain. I hope you get double spikes too! I am amazed at how sticky and sweet (for the black ants) the buds become.

    My rhynchostylis I think grew only about 2 inches only and I've had it for almost two years now. It doesn't look sick. The roots and the few leaves it has are OK. It's just that it grows so slowly. So it comforts me to know that I am not the only one with a "slow-growing" rhynchostylis.

    I've had mine for about 2 years and it still looks like a toddler. Well, if it does get big, Al, I'll give you an update in about a decade from now.

    Not yet, Zain. The last time was in July 2013. When you say "high light" do you mean direct sunlight?

    No, under the shade but receive more than 60% of light under single layer net, remember in order to encourage the orchids to flower fertilizer, light and water are very important for the lowland orchids.

    Thank you for the advice, Zain. As you can see in the picture, mine are attached to a huge hibiscus. It gets dappled sunlight during certain times of the day. I hope that is good enough. So far, flowering has been once a year, often in the second half of the year.

    I am excited about your quinquevulnera since that is one Aerides that occurs naturally in both our countries. I have a fourth Aerides whose identity I am not so sure about. Naturally I would assume it to be another lawrenciae since that is a native of Mindanao island where I live. But I notice the leaves which are bilobed at the tip and that is different from the lawrenciae leaf. I hope it turns out to be another kind of Aerides. I will try to take a good picture tomorrow and upload it. Perhaps you can help me with its exact identity.

    Zainal, here are the comparative pictures, of the Aerides lawrenciae and the other orchid, which I think is also an Aerides, but I am not sure which one because I noticed the difference in the apical portion of the leaves.

    First 2 photos: Aerides lawrenciae with more even leaf tips
    Last 2 photos: orchid in question

    Default More photos for comparison

    Yew Sung, I also need your expert advice.

    Picture 1: Aerides lawrenciae
    Picture 2: Orchid NoID, back portion of the leaf where the shape of the apical part is more obvious because of the plain white backdrop

    Hi Angel that could be another variation of Aeredis lawrencia as you said the tip for lawrencia basically are more even I have Aeredis quenquevulnera the leaf tips got notch whatever it is definitely very interesting you need to wait till the next season as your plant basically is due for flowering. To say vanda unlikely as the leafs presentation are so different.

    That's probably about right Angel and maybe even a bit longer to get good size.........................AL
