It's said that Phaius prefers cool weather so I hope it will grow well in my garden.
At this time of year, my species orchids are starting to bloom after their long nap during the dry season.
Unlike other hybrids that can bloom occasionally throughout the year, species orchids only bloom once, usually at the beginning of the rainy season here. Some of them are fragrant but some don't carry a scent.
I like them because they are not so fussy; I just hang them under the trees and they can manage themselves quite well.
