Be the first to review this product First to review this product

Malaxis latifolia (syn. Dienia ophrydis)


This terrestrial species is native to South East Asia, and can be found in a variety of growing habitats.  Medium to bright diffused light only, to avoid burning the soft pleated foliage. The plant goes dormant each winter with only bare bulbs visible above the media, and then new growth with new leaves and blooms spikes emerges in mid to late spring.  While dormant water very very sparingly and do not fertilize.  Water can be increased after new growth emerges and during the warmer months the root system should not be allowed to dry out. Flower stems are long and upright with new buds appearing yellow and green and turning orange to red as they open and mature.  The rainbow effect is very striking and goes on for months. 


We have two plants we have grown from 'corms' that originally came from our mother plant.  These keiki-like growths drop off the mama plant in the fall or winter and then can be planted come spring to create a new plant.  Plants offered are both well established with flowers already visible.   They are about 24" tall in flower.


 Prices are Net with no Furher Discounts or Promo Codes Applying. Due to size, these will be charged Actual Cost of Shipping.


Please understand that while some of these Special Offerings may be listed with spikes, buds or blooms, you are purchasing plants offered for their uniqueness, to be collected and grown by serious hobbyists or advanced growers.  For this reason please do not expect us to guarantee buds and blooms of One of a Kind Items.  If for some reason spikes are damaged, plants will reflower in the future with the right care.
