Butterfly Orchid
Origin: South America

Psychopsis papilio has very large and spectacular flowers with antenna-like sepals and petals.

The inflorescences are erect or curved and flat in the upper part where many flowers are formed in succession over a period of several months. The inflorescence continues to grow and form new buds, often over a period of several years.

Prefers bright light but no direct sunlight.

Prefer rainwater or non-alkaline water at room temperature. Do not use water from a water softener, because it contains too much salt.
