Phalaenopsis honghenensis

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Asia, China, Thailand, Yunnan

Phalaenopsis honghenensis is a species of miniature, epiphytic orchid, which originates from China and Thailand, where this orchid species can be found growing on the trunks of mossy, lichen covered trees.

The flowers of Phalaenopsis honghenensis can be variable in colour.  The flowers are fragrant, producing a sweet fragrance, which has quite different, pleasing, yet surprising characteristics and scent notes.

Phalaenopsis honghenensis grows well in intermediate, humid conditions, in indirect, filtered light.  This orchid’s roots have a somewhat warty texture.
