Description 

We actually bred this exciting new strain of Phal. tetraspis primarily for fragrance.  Both species parents are very fragrant—the alba (white) color form has a delightful jasmine scent and the awarded green color form, 'Montclair Jade' AM/AOS, has an enticing Lilly of the Valley scent. The flower should be in between the two parents and can be something intriguing and wonderful. We have not flowered them yet, but plants are robust with glossy leaves.

 Phal. tetraspis is native to the Andaman Islands, the Nicobar Islands, and northwestern Sumatra. Its natural habitat is the hot and wet jungles at elevations near sea level. Phal. tetraspis is a free bloomer, producing good size fragrant flowers, up to 8 flowers on each tall, branching, upright inflorescence held well above the foliage. It is a compact plant and vigorous grower and can begin blooming on young small plants. It has a multiple spike habit—flowers will bloom from old spikes for several years while new spikes are forming, so it will flower for a very long period. Do not cut the spike unless it is dry and yellow. It can be grown either mounted or in a pot. Tall spikes may need to be staked if potted. Water and fertilize regularly. During the hot summer months mounted plants may need daily watering. Do not let it get too dry. Phal. tetraspis thrives in high humidity, warm temperatures, and good air circulation. Can be grown on a bright windowsill or underlights. Highly recommended for Phal species collectors and lovers of fragrant orchids.

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.
