Polystachya longicoatha is a species we have in bloom now. The flower spike is about 18 inches long with a clump of flowers at the top. The blooms are a pale lavender with a tiny amount of tessellations (barely visible in photo). This plant grows alongside our phals and blooms with about 1000 - 1500 footcandles of light. It appears to like a relative humidity of 55 - 70 % (like a phal), but probably could tolerate a bit dryer conditions. Enjoy!
Very cool color, Bruce...thanks for the detailed growing conditions. Makes me think I could probably add that to my wish list! (which I really need to stop doing!) LOL
Lovely color, and what a neat spike shape! Like a lavender whirlpool.
lovely colour... I'm starting to really get into the Polystachya's... I've only got one... Polystachea bractescens... and they seem to be very different... I like the colour on this one, so will have to add this to the 'keep a look out for' list!
