Wow!! That's an orchid to remember. Does it have a scent.? Does it grow in heat or cold best? Do you feed it anything special? How much shade? Do you have mostly ground orchids or tree orchids? Is there an export ban? What is it called? It sure has my attention. Enjoy!!!:budge:

Blessings,

It is called a Phaius Tankervilleae , Swamp Orchid grows in dappled shade in swampy ground in North QLD.. Yes it has a very nice perfume. Only Native fertilzer. It is a tropical Orchid.. There is an export band.. But she could get it from a specialist grower over there.. Grows in shade.
