    Default Spathoglottis kimballiana

    A 'freebie' from TOF a many months back. Keeps blooming, and has two seed pods developing. When the pods burst, the keiki's tend to take root in my semi/hydro pots. I have these pleated terrestrials coming up everywhere, and at first thought they were weeds (grass), but noticed the roots were fatter, and the leaves were pleated. I couldn't tell if they were Phaius, Spathoglottis, Zygopetalum, or Peristeria. The larger ones seem ot have narrow leaves so I believe them to be Spathoglottis, or remote chance of being Peristeria. Mine have all bloomed, but never gone to seed. It must be a neighbor growing one. Phaius and 'Spath' have assimilated here, but I don't know of any wild ones nearby.

    A lovely Spathoglottis kimballiana. Spathoglottis seeds have a tendency to germinate everywhere in the garden - on moss-covered pots and bricks and even on the ground.

    Sounds like a plant that is easy to get along with. Maybe I should give them a try .

    It is a terrestrial - you can use cym mix, or tree fern with a little potting soil. Keep moist, never let dry out.

    I have a Spath Kimbaliana too, a very bright yellow one. This has narrower leaves than other spaths.
