Introducing the Tuberolabium kotoense, an exquisite intermediate to warm Taiwan species that effortlessly captures the essence of beauty and grace in the world of orchids. This lovely monopodial orchid boasts fleshy light green leaves and pendant inflorescences with waxy white flowers arranged in a captivating spiral fashion. Each bloom showcases a sparkling surface accentuated by a purple-tinged lip, creating a mesmerizing visual delight reminiscent of the enchanting Phal. japonica.

Native to Taiwan, the Tuberolabium kotoense thrives in semi-shady, warm conditions, flourishing particularly well when temperatures reach the 80s. In its natural habitat, it gracefully clings to the trunks of ficus trees, showcasing its upright growing epiphytic nature. This captivating species graces us with its blooms during the fall to winter season, making it a delightful addition to any orchid collection.

Cultivation Tips:

  • Temperature: Intermediate to warm conditions are optimal for Tuberolabium kotoense. While it can tolerate intermediate temperatures, the plant progresses faster when exposed to the warmth of the 80s.
  • Light Level: Provide medium light for the plant to thrive, ensuring it receives bright yet filtered light to replicate its natural habitat.
  • Bloom Season: Enjoy the enchanting display of purple-tinged white blooms during the fall and winter months.
  • Watering & Fertilizing: Maintain regular watering and fertilizing throughout the year to support healthy growth and vibrant blooms. Allow the plant to dry out between waterings for optimal results.
