Native to Malaysia,
sweelimii has nice yellow with reddish brown spots - very pretty! Chiloschistas
are perhaps the hardiest and most free blooming leafless orchid there
are. Though leafless they do occasionally sport a tiny leaf.
The tangle of roots produce arching flower spikes covered
with 1/2" flowers. This is one of the more unusual plants you can
have grace your orchid collection. We sent one of these to Selby Gardens
this spring and it was verified as being Chiloschista sweelimii (and got
an official OIC number).
