Introducing the majestic Eria ornata, an exquisite orchid species originating from the enchanting landscapes of the Himalayas, Thailand, Malaysia, Sumatra, Borneo, Java, and the Philippines. This small to medium-sized epiphyte boasts an allure that captivates enthusiasts with its unique features and delicate blooms.

With its dark brown, stiff, woody roots emerging from laterally compressed, cylindrical pseudobulbs, each adorned with basal sheaths, the Eria ornata exudes elegance. Its foliage is equally striking, boasting 3 to 5 fleshy, elliptic-lanceolate to oblong leaves. These leaves, featuring an open channelled petiolate base, provide a verdant backdrop to the orchid's floral display.

In the spring and summer, the Eria ornata unveils its crowning glory—a racemose inflorescence, ascending or arching, measuring up to 45 cm long. This inflorescence, adorned with large ovate-lanceolate, orange to red-brown bracts, showcases several to many flowers. Each bloom, though small, carries a fragrance reminiscent of vanilla, adding a delightful olfactory dimension to its charm.

Cultivating the Eria ornata is a rewarding endeavor for orchid aficionados. Providing diffused light and high humidity while ensuring good air circulation are paramount for its thriving growth. Direct sunlight should be avoided to prevent leaf burn, while maintaining consistent moisture levels is essential, especially during the summer months. Daily watering is recommended to keep the orchid hydrated and vibrant.

This is a blooming size in a 5" pot, newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!

With its enchanting blooms and graceful demeanor, the Eria ornata is more than just an orchid—it's a testament to nature's beauty and a treasure for enthusiasts seeking to adorn their spaces with elegance and allure. Embark on a journey with this captivating orchid, and let its splendor elevate your botanical sanctuary to new heights.
