Discover the captivating beauty of the Kingidium deliciosum, a stunning miniature orchid that will bring a touch of elegance to any space. Also known as Phalaenopsis deliciosa, this orchid species is native to the lush regions of south-eastern Asia, from the Indian subcontinent to Malesia and China. With its exquisite white to purple flowers adorned with delicate rose pink dots around the center, this orchid is a true botanical treasure.

Cultivating the Kingidium deliciosum is a rewarding experience, thanks to its unique characteristics. As a miniature epiphytic herb, this orchid thrives when grown on a supporting structure such as a piece of bark or a specialized orchid mount.

Its undulate margined leaves provide an unmistakable feature, making it easy to identify even when it is not currently in bloom.

The Kingidium deliciosum boasts small flowers, approximately 1 cm in diameter. While the typical coloration leans towards a gentle pink shade, variations in white and yellow hues can also be found. Interestingly, the inflorescences, which usually appear as panicles or, less commonly, racemes, have the remarkable ability to continue growing and producing new flowers over multiple flowering periods.

For optimal growth, provide this miniature orchid with the right conditions. Originating from various regions such as the Chinese Himalayas, Assam India, Bangladesh, eastern Himalayas, Nepal, Sikkim, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Borneo, Java, Moluccas, the Philippines, Sulawesi, and Sumatra, it prefers to thrive in riverine forests at elevations below 600 meters.

Creating a suitable environment for the Kingidium deliciosum involves providing warm to hot conditions. Ensure a well-lit location, providing ample bright, indirect light without exposing it to direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate foliage. Maintaining a temperature range between 20°C to 30°C (68°F to 86°F) during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night will promote healthy growth.

When it comes to watering, it is essential to strike a balance. Allow the growing medium to approach dryness before watering again, as overwatering can lead to root rot. As an epiphyte, this orchid benefits from high humidity levels, which can be achieved by misting the foliage regularly or placing a humidity tray nearby.

The Kingidium deliciosum is known for its ability to bloom at any time of the year and can produce multiple flowering periods if well cared for. Its racemose inflorescence, which can reach up to 8 inches (20 cm) in length and often branches out, presents a mesmerizing display of flowers that face in all directions.

This is a blooming size in a 2" pot, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, Limited!
