Schoenorchis scolopendria

Family: Orchidaceae

Countries: Asia, Vietnam

Schoenorchis scolopendria is a miniature, epiphytic orchid species with a creeping habit.  In the wild, these orchids can be found growing on the twigs and branches of trees, in the forests of Vietnam.

Schoenorchis scolopendria is best grown mounted onto cork or branches, which have sufficient room to allow the plant to grow and spread.  Schoenorchis scolopendria prefers to dry out between waterings.  I’ve found that this miniature orchid is best grown mounted directly onto a piece of cork bark, without any moss covering its roots.

Grow Schoenorchis scolopendria in bright, indirect light, in humid conditions, watering the plants three or four times per week, at most.

Schoenorchis scolopendria has thick and leathery, textured leaves.  This miniature orchid produces tiny, pink flowers; Schoenorchis scolopendria often flowers in springtime, but plants can bloom at any time of year.
