Rhynchostylis Gigantea is a very exclusive orchid that is available for a limited period of the year.
This orchid has between 1 and 3 flower clusters of which the flowers open successively and bloom for a total of 3 to 4 months. The flowers spread a delicious fragrance and the flower clusters can reach a length of 30 cm.
There is a wide variety of colours in which the purple-spotted and the pink-spotted flowers are the most common, followed by the solo purple, white and orange varieties. Originally, the plant had aerial roots, but in our gardens it is grown in charcoal. The latter has the important property that the moisture it retains is released slowly, so its care is fairly easy.
