Phalaenopsis chibae

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Asia, Vietnam

Phalaenopsis chibae is an epiphytic orchid species, which is endemic to Vietnam.  I’d describe Phalaenopsis chibae as a miniature to small sized orchid species.

Phalaenopsis chibae displays rather large, dark reddish-purple coloured leaves, which have an attractive glossy sheen, they’re really quite reflective.

This miniature orchid species produces tall flowering stems that feature ten or more, red-orange, orange and yellow coloured flowers, which are very small in size – this Phalaenopsis species’ inflorescences are much smaller than most Phalaenopsis blooms – even those produced by much smaller plants.

Phalaenopsis chibae flourishes when it’s grown in warm temperatures, under bright, filtered, diffused light.  This orchid flourishes in a humid environment.
