Description 

Phal. lueddemanniana is native to the Philippine Islands, where it occurs abundantly at elevations up to 330 feet. This particular variety is found in Quezon Province, where it grows in a hot, humid environment with even watering year round and low levels of light. The bright, yellow-green leaves are 6-12 inches long, narrow, rectangular, fleshy and arranged horizontally or pendant. The waxy flowers are about 3 inches wide, intensely fragrant, bloom in the summer and lasts about 2 months. This variety is known to have longer inflorescence than typical of the species. The flowers are variable, but generally have fuchsia-colored bars on a white background. It is a sequential bloomer, which means that flowers bloom one after another on the spike. It also has a multiple spike habit, capable of giving a long lasting display, as previously flowered spikes remain green for several years producing even more buds and flowers while simultaneously creating additional new flower spikes. Do not cut the flower spike unless it is brown and dry. Phal. lueddemanniana has a habit of forming keiki (Hawaiian word for baby, singular or plural) at a previously flowered node of a spike. The keiki can be left on the spike or removed once the roots are about 3 inches long and potted up. Keiki are exact duplicates of the mother plant. These plants have amazing species vigor, heat tolerance, and disease resistance. This species grows best mounted to better display its pendant spikes and flowers. If grown in a pot, staking the spikes will help support the weight of the flowers. Grows well under lights or on a windowsill. Phal. lueddemanniana is easy to grow and flower. It does not need a cool treatment in order to bloom like the fall blooming Phals. Provide good humidity, warm to hot temperatures, and even watering year round. We are fortunate to receive seedlings of this strain from a friend in the Philippines as it is rarely available in USA. Highly recommended for beginners, species collector, fragrant orchid lover, growers in hot climates.

PLEASE NOTE: Since this is a Seedling Population (not a Mericlone which produces exact duplicates), the picture is for illustration purposes only. No two plants will be the same from this cross, and they will flower in a range of possibilities coming from the two parents.
