Short Description: Chiloschista is a lovely leafless orchid which is also commonly known as 'Root Orchid'. This is a lovely white form of the species. These plants are leafless & remain so almost throughout the year. The plant looks like a crown of fleshy roots which flowers on 6-inch long flower spikes, the flowers are also fragrant and smell like vanilla. These plants need good levels of humidity to do well. Water them well every day.
Please refer plant pictures for size reference.
Note: Colors, patterns & size of the flowers can vary due to the variations produced by hybrids or species. There are chances that the buds/flowers could dry up in transit during Shipping after packing. The local climatic conditions and the nutrition given can affect the brightness & colour intensity of flowers. While we make every effort to match the actual colours of the flowers, the photographs may not be the exact representation, due to different monitor setting.
Botanicals refer to unusual orchids that one hardly comes across in the catalogs of reputed orchid dealers as they have a microscopic niche market unlike the instant appeal of flamboyant, colourful and generous flowering commercial grade orchids. Orchidtree is one such nursery that cares for the niche market and from time to time keep the collectors of botanicals happy. I am one of such crazed person who keep buying many of them like Schoenorchis, a fingernail sized mini orchid, Pteroceras, Chilochistas, and Dyakias. Undoubtedly, Orchidtree ensures orchid hobbiest of every shade are taken care of and keep the amber glowing!
