Phalaenopsis inscriptiosinensis

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Asia, Sumatra

Phalaenopsis inscriptiosinensis is an epiphytic orchid species from Sumatra, where this small to medium sized orchid can be found growing upon trees in forested areas.  Phalaenopsis inscriptiosinensis plants produce quite striking flowers.  The reddish brown markings displayed over the soft yellow coloured petals have a resemblance to Chinese lettering – this orchid species’ common name is the Chinese Character Phalaenopsis – which is very apt.

This orchid species requires consistent growing conditions.  Phalaenopsis inscriptiosinensis grows best in warm to hot temperatures; in areas that also enjoy a very humid environment.  These orchids thrive under bright, filtered light, with regular and quite thorough watering.
