Introducing the Eria floribunda Orchid - a captivating species native to the lush montane forests of South East Asia. This orchid, known for its arching sprays, boasts up to 20cm-long canes adorned with densely arranged small white flowers, each delicately marked with enticing red accents. The result is a spectacular display, with several flower spikes adorning each cane, creating a breathtaking visual feast.

Cultivation Tips: Eria floribunda thrives as a small to medium-sized, warm to cold growing epiphyte, making it an ideal specimen plant. Hailing from Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, and the Philippines, this orchid is accustomed to primary montane forests, flourishing on large trees along streams at elevations ranging from 500 to 2400 meters.

The plant features erect, stem-like pseudobulbs carrying 2 to 5 apical leaves. The leaves are linear-lanceolate to elliptic, acute, and soft. The striking flowers produce sweet nectar from the base of the lip and emit a brackish scent.

  • Size: Stems range from 15-35 cm or more in length and 8-10 mm in diameter.
  • Leaves: 3-6 alternating two-ranked leaves near the apex, varying in shape and size (12-30 cm long, 1-2 cm broad).
  • Inflorescences: Usually 3-5 per stem, pendent or horizontally spreading, 7-15 cm long (occasionally up to 20 cm) with resupinate flowers (5-8 mm across).
