Spathoglottis plicata-Philippine ground orchid

Thanks to a reader who pointed out, I think the previous pictures of my orchid-like plant should be renamed to Spathoglottis plicata.

It grows well in tropical and semitropical areas as it thrives in great air circulation and very bright light, as well as hot temperature.


The flowers will be in magenta (pink-purple) color and bloom repeatedly, throughout the year.


It can be propagated by dividing the rhizomes, tubers, corms or bulbs (including offsets). It also has seeds which can be germinated.

So after all, my orchid is really an orchid..hehe! Oh, more info found here about Spathoglottis plicata.
