    You said it, those are cute blooms. Are they fragrant?

    In our country it only blooms in spring or autumn. The fragrance only appears in daytime.
    By the way, has any P. equestris found in Kalimantan? So far as I know only find in Philippines.

    Hi Edward, never known that equestris found in kalimantan since I get it from a breeder in East Java. They grown it from flask as far as I heard. But hardly to keep it alive, 1 normal form of equestris died of root rot and the rosea form died of too much water (both are in plastic pots) and the other died coz lack of watering as its attach on a fern I'm not lucking with this type I guess.

    Thanks for your information.
    I am sorry about your P. equestris.
    Most of my P. equestris are mounted. It is easy to root rot in pots for me too.
