    Default Aerides lawrenciae

    This husky Philippine native orchid put out two flower spikes recently. I remember this fragrant orchid in my grandma's garden. It was always prominent in flower arrangements during family gatherings.

    Hello Sue. I think this one would thrive in your area. It is a warm growing orchid and likes lots of natural light

    So beautiful, Angel, just so beautiful. Your photos even capture the ambiance of the setting your aerides is in - makes me wish I could just sit there quietly and take it all in.

    Thanks Yew. But I just can't imagine you having a problem with your plant. You seem to have the magic touch with orchids, your plants are just outstanding!

    Thank you, Maura. It is in a shady spot, shielded from the tropical sun by the foliage of a pink hibiscus. Unlike its neighbors: some oncidiums, a brassavola hybrid, an old cattleya, and a few dendrobiums which are all attached to the hibiscus, the Lawrenciae is attached to piece of wood which hangs by a wire from one of the hibiscus' branches. I think it's better that way so I can transfer the plant to another spot if the shade gets oppressive.

    I will post some photos where I moved the plant in full sun just for a few minutes so I could take clearer pictures.

    I moved the plant to a sunny spot just for a few minutes for this pictorial. Notice the third spike on the lower left portion.

    A very healthy, beautiful plant and flowers Angel. You should be proud of this orchid and your obvious good care given to it. I owned a Aerides lawrenciae. Unfortunately it died and I recently was told by a Aerides commercial grower how sensitive they are to any drop in humidity.......................With our cold, dry winter winds I can keep my orchids warm, but I have a hard time keeping in humidity above 40 and 50 percent when winds are easily 40 to 50 miles a hour! Other Vandaceous types I have no problem with, but I only have two Aerides doing well in my enviroment. Again, great job Angel! AL

    Thanks Al. Fortunately, the lawrenciae grows very well here. After all, it is a native of Mindanao island in the Philippines. And that is where I live. My grandma's garden was where I first saw a lawrenciae. It was growing on the trunk of a guava tree, along with soem Pteroceras and the native phal intermedia. It received no special care or fertilizer of any kind, just the regular watering. And it thrived for many years.
