Short Description: Rhynchostylis retusa pink also called as the foxtail orchid, is a vandaceous species orchid. Flowers have a spicy aroma that is released when temperatures are warm. The inflorescence is a pendulous, consisting of more than 100 pink-spotted white flowers. This species blooms on the onset of spring, during the Assamese harvest festival Bihu In india.
Humidity is critical and the plant should be misted or watered daily. These orchids are all epiphytic.They do not like any potting medium. Vanda orchid must not be allowed to dry out entirely. Saturate the roots with water overtime you water, that means the roots should turn green and retain a drop of water at the tip. Watering of this Vandas must be done with care to prevent water from remaining in the crowns ( top leafs), a condition that can cause crown rot.
