This famous “ghost” has intrigued people for many years with its incredible white frog-like flowers! It has been popularized by book and movie…and here’s a chance to grow it in your own environment! Our first introduction to it was in 1984 and it has drawn our attention since. Looking at the blossom, it is easy to see that this orchid is a relative of the African angraecoids. It’s in one of the two new world genera of angraecoid (the other being Campylocentrum). It is perhaps best known as Polyradicion or Polyrrhiza lindenii but is most accurately called Dendrophylax lindenii. Though certainly not the easiest to grow of orchids, we’ve found success by using very clean water (we use reverse osmosis) with a full complement of micronutrients. A daily misting in our greenhouse keeps root tips green and growing year round.
Choose to receive your plant either mounted on cork, in a mesh tube or bareroot. Representative examples are shown in Brenda’s hands.
