Rhynchostylis –
There are about 6 species of evergreen, monopodial, epiphytic orchids from warm, moist forest in India, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka in this genus. They have thick, rigid, aerial roots and produces 8-10 pairs of semi-rigid, linear to strap shaped leaves at the apexes of short thick stems. Many small flowers are borne in dense, upright or pendent racemes that arise laterally from the bases of the leaves from spring to winter.
Intermediate growing orchids (see chart below). Grow in epiphytic orchid potting mix in half pots or in slatted baskets. Provide high humidity, full light, and shade from hot sun. In summer, water freely, mist daily, and apply a balanced liquid fertilizer at every third watering, water moderately in winter.
Prone to spider mites, aphids and mealybugs.
