Rhynchostylis Orchids

Rhynchostylis Orchids are originally from Thailand, Laos, The Philippines and surroundong areas. They are also refered to as 'Foxtail Orchids'

Temperature requirements for Rhynchostylis Orchids: a range of 60 - 80 degrees F .

Humidity requirements for Rhynchostylis Orchids.: 60 to 70 percent humidity is ideal for most species, however they are a tolerant species.

Water : Water when the mix approaches dryness during flowering or spike initiation. When not flowering allow the mix to become just dry between watering.

Repotting:
Repot in the early spring months from March to April using clay pots and a medium grade bark mix. Keep dry after repotting as many of the roots can crack due to their stiff nature.

There are 3 favorite Rhynchostylus spicies:

1. Rhynchostylis retusa

The plants die if the leaves are wet frequently. They prefer moderate waterings, heavy fertilizing, and very bright shade to direct morning light. Flowering is usually summer into fall.

The plant is found in semi-deciduous and deciduous dry lowland forests woodlands at elevations of sealevel to 700 m, native to Malaya, Singapore, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India.

Rhynchostylis retusa have stout, repent, short stem carrying to 12, curved, fleshy, deeply channeled, keeld, retuse apically leaves and blooms on an axillary, pendant, to 60 cm long, racemose, densely many flowered, cylindrical inflorescence that occurs in the winter and early spring.

2. Rhynchostylis coelestis:

Rhyncostylis coelestis is native to Southeast Asia and can be found in Thailand India and Burma. This plant has a Vanda like growth habit with stiff-folded leaves that curve downwards. The beautiful 2 tone blue flowers emerge in summer and have the fragrance of grapes. The flowers are long lasting and the plant is easy to grow as long as there is enough light.

3. Rhynchostylis gigantea

Rhynchostylis gigantea are best grown in wood slat basket with little or no potting material and will grow massive fleshy roots entangled throughout the basket if given uniform water and fertilizer. The plants are warm to hot growing. They can grow somewhat like a Vanda but will tolerate cooler conditions and lower light.

4. Rhynchostylis violacea

These orchids have a full spray of many miniature lavender and white flowers. This plant blooms in the winter and in the spring. The orchid prefers intermediate to warm temperatures, filtered light, and even moisture.
