This is considered to be a terrestrial orchid, because its roots grow in the soil, which is considered normal for the large majority of land plants, but not so typical of most orchid species. Thus, the majority of orchids in our Gardens are categorized as being epiphytic in regards where their roots thrive—growing on other plants (especially trees) or even on rocks—places with perfect drainage and extensive exposure to ambient atmospheric conditions, so that makes this variety an unusual one for our Garden.
This particular variety of orchid will grow well in a sunny location or in a partially shaded one, and blooms for much of the warm season. There are at least two other colors available for this species: pink and white. Another naturalized species of Spathoglottis grows wild on the Big Island and Oahu; it is known as the Philippine Ground Orchid.
