Native to Borneo,
Dimorphorchis want bright light and intermediate to warm temperatures.
They are fascinating plants that have two distinctly different flowers
on the same inflorescence.
The basal flowers are really fragrant and are are yellow with purple spots
and theres usually just a couple of these.
The apical flowers creamy colored with maroon-red blotches and are really
neat looking. We bloomed out first one last summer and it was AMAZING!!!
It had two female flowers (the yellow ones) and fifty male flowers (the
red and white ones) on two six foot long inflorescences. Everyone with
the right growing conditions should have one of these!
