    We have a number of Luisias endemic to the Philippines. Unfortunately they keep dying on me. I have attached two plants to trees where they can grow in heavy shade but both died after several months.

    The top two photos are of Luisia filiformis. I have one. the plant is pendulous (about 2.5 ft long now) with thin 10 inch leaves that are spaced several inches apart. The flowers are unique in that the lateral petals elongate for several days after the flower first open. I love it!

    The first and second pictures it could be either Luisia filiformis or Luisia secunda but according to IOSPE Lsa. filiformis flower size is 5mm while Lsa. secunda is 4cm. The third picture looks more like Lsa. brachystachys instead of Lsa. thailandica except the whole flower is yellow. You can check IOSPE website for reference.

    All of them are cute regardless. Do they have any scent? Hope that I could acquired orchid from this genus someday.
