Live Phaius orchid plant is blooming size, but NOT currently flowering.
This orchid is doubly unique in that it’s a shade-lover, and that it’s terrestrial in its native habitat! Phaius Lady Ramona Harris ‘Here’s Looking at You’ is well adapted to orchid potting media, but if you live in a region with no freeze, it does wonderfully well in a perennial garden! Large flowers come in on tall, 2-3′ spikes. The back of Phaius flowers are white, contrasting with the front, where the show really happens. Flowers are exceptionally long lived.
Live orchid plant comes in a 4” nursery pot, with the perfect potting media to keep your new friend happy and healthy. Also available in 4″ decorative biodegradable organic polymer pots.
Care is very easy – this plant will put out new spikes multiple times a year with minimal attention! This orchid prefers regular fertilization (“weakly, weekly”), and occasional misting. Choose an eastern exposure (or south/west with a dappled curtain) for the most vigorous growth!
