Paraphalaenopsis sp.

Paraphalaenopsis, Rat-tailed Phalaenopsis
Family: Orchidaceae
Origin: Borneo
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphytePink flowersWhite/off-white flowersUnusual colorYellow/orange flowers

The genus Paraphalaenopsis consisting of 4 species endemic to Borneo and one natural (unconfirmed) hybrid, Paraphalaenopsis × thorntonii (P. denevei × P. serpentilingua).

They are morphologically similar to Phalaenopsis and were a long time considered as species of that genus. The distinguishing feature of this small genus is the terete, cylindrical leaves which lead to the genus becoming popularly known as the 'rat-tailed' phalaenopsis.

Best in baskets or mounted since plants tend to become pendent with age.

A forest climber to 7 m long from a thickened rootstock, occurring in Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Fernando Po and Cameroun. This very rare, large woody vine climbs high up into tall forest trees with beautiful, glossy, heart-shaped leaves and very large, bizarre, saxophone-shaped flowers about 30 cm across that are mottled purple to red with a purplish striped throat. Pararistolochia goldieana with fly-pollinated flowers the size of a cardboard box, this liana is Africa's equivalent of Rafflesia. Common Name - African Corpse Flower. Some say it is on account of the smell of decaying flesh of the mature flower.
