Description

Rhynchostylis Gigantea Red is a species vandaceous orchid. This dark wine-colored form of Rhy.gigantea is also known as var. rattana, or "Sagarik Strain". Densely flowered inflorescences, which appear in autumn and winter, have sweetly fragrant blooms that last for about two weeks. 

These orchids are all epiphytic. They do not like any potting medium. Vanda orchids must not be allowed to dry out entirely. Watering of this vandaceous species must be done with care to prevent water from remaining in the crowns (top leaves), a condition that can cause crown rot. Watering should be regular, every day, allow the roots to dry a bit between watering. Continuous and strong air movement around the roots is very important for proper growth.
