Introducing the Aerides lawrenceae, a captivating and fragrant vandaceous orchid that thrives in warm to intermediate conditions. Native to the lush and sun-dappled forests of the Philippines, this monopodial epiphyte can be found gracing the branches of trees at elevations of up to 800 meters. Renowned for its elegant presence, the Aerides lawrenceae boasts an elongated stem adorned with strap-shaped leaves and a breathtaking display of blooms during the fall and early winter.

The Aerides lawrenceae stands out with its long-lasting, fragrant flowers that appear in clusters of waxy, substantial pink and white blossoms. Its natural habitat includes the islands of Leyte in the Visayan Sea, as well as Cotabato and Davao in Mindanao. This orchid's striking appearance and delightful fragrance make it a prized addition to any orchid enthusiast's collection.

Cultivation Tips:

1. Water Requirement: Maintaining the right level of moisture is crucial for the well-being of your Aerides lawrenceae. In the summer months, water generously twice a week to keep the roots hydrated and flourishing. However, exercise caution during the winter to prevent the plant from drying out completely. While it's important to avoid waterlogging, ensure that the plant does not become parched.

2. Climate: This orchid thrives in tropical conditions, ideally within the temperature range of 15 to 28 degrees Celsius (59 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit). Make sure to provide consistent warmth to mimic its natural habitat.

3. Fertilizing: During the summer months, offer a weekly dose of low-concentration fertilizer to provide essential nutrients for growth and blooming. However, in the winter, reduce the concentration and fertilize only once a month to accommodate the plant's reduced metabolic activity during this period.

4. Light and Humidity: Place your Aerides lawrenceae in a location with bright, indirect light. It thrives under dappled sunlight or in an area with filtered sunlight. High humidity levels are crucial for its well-being, so consider using a humidity tray or a room humidifier to maintain optimal moisture levels. Adequate air circulation is also essential, but this species can tolerate somewhat lower light levels compared to other Vandaceous orchids.

5. Growing Medium: You have the option to grow your Aerides lawrenceae bare-root or mounted, but wooden baskets are highly recommended for home cultivation. These baskets not only accommodate the plant's graceful stature but also retain moisture while allowing necessary air circulation to the roots. The wooden basket provides a suitable environment that mimics the orchid's natural epiphytic growth habit.

6. Watering: For plants grown without a planting medium, daily watering is vital during the summer to prevent the roots from drying out. However, reduce watering somewhat during the cooler months, while ensuring that the plant doesn't become excessively dry between waterings. Properly timed and balanced watering is key to maintaining the health of your Aerides lawrenceae.
