Rhyncostylis coelestis 'Blue' *Rare Species*

SKU:10400/25

Rhyncostylis coelestis


(Photo shown courtesy of Lourens Grobler)


This Asian species is prized for its stems of gorgeous blue, lavender or hyacinth colored blooms with a delightful, sweet perfume. Upright stems emerge from the base of vandaceous foliage.  Blooming season in most places is late spring and early summer, but in warm climates, multiple inflorescences can show from March through August.


Growing Suggestions: Best suited from intermediate to warm conditions like most members of the Vanda alliance.  Plants will reach approximately 12 inches across when mature, and have multiple growths or 'fans' per plant.  These should be grown in hanging baskets for best results, as they will have long aerial roots.  If grown in pots, always use a well-draining open media. High humidity with frequent mistings are needed, and plants should be fertilized every third or fourth watering year round.


We have Limited Quantities of these hard-to-find plants in 2.5" pots.  Plants are expected to be flowering size in approximately 2 years.


   To learn more about about this plant, including time to first flowering please click on the 'Additional Information' tab below.  Unless otherwise stated, please understand that bloom photos show mature sized plants not what those offered currently look like.


These beautiful plants were provided by our friends at a wholesale orchid nursery in Hawaii. Because we did not raise them in our greenhouses, we can not guarantee them to be virus free as we would our own lab grown material. Otherwise, we guarantee your satisfaction and safe delivery as with other plant purchases.
