Sarcochilus Image
Sarcochilus orchids are gaining in popularity due to their compact form and an ever increasing range of colours and styles. These orchids are found along the east coast of Australia with some occuring in Tasmania. They are sometimes called Orange Blossom orchids or Ravine orchids (as they often grow in cool, shady valleys).
Best grown under 50 - 70% shade - a lot of growers place them under the bench so they get additional shading from plants overhead. These plants need protection from the extremes of heat and plenty of water in warm weather. Their compact size makes them ideal for indoor culture.
