Phalaenopsis tetraspis – the most undemanding orchid

Among the species orchids, phalaenopsis are true Spartans. And one of the most hardy species is the phalaenopsis four-shield, or Tetraspis. He is content with minimal care, completely capricious, easily adaptable. And, unfortunately, almost completely disappeared from the window sills. Varietal hybrids with their spectacular flowering are found at every step, but each species specimen will have to be hunted. And lay out a considerable price. But if you love exoticism and are tired of such predictable beauty, then the magnificent four-shield phalaenopsis will gladly win the title of the most undemanding epiphyte in your collection.

Phalaenopsis tetraspis – the most undemanding orchid

Four-Phalaenopsis – the most reliable of the species Phalaenopsis
Among species orchids, general admiration and attention is usually attracted not by species phalaenopsis, but by their competitors. They are considered so rare that just a decade ago, the only way to get a copy was to order plants in their homeland.

But as soon as the first phalaenopsis of Thai or Malaysian origin settled on the windowsills of collectors, their merits became obvious. And along with other rare species of orchids, “butterflies” began to appear in catalogs and on shelves.

Looking closely at the phalaenopsis, which gave rise to the thousands of luxurious varieties that we see at every step, it is worthwhile first of all to pay attention to the four-shield phalaenopsis. This species is valuable due to the simplicity of its cultivation, but it is worth taking a closer look at the decorative characteristics.
Phalaenopsis tetraspis (Phalaenopsis tetraspis) is best known by its species name, and not by the transferable name of the four-winged phalaenopsis. This unique plant, widely distributed in the tropical forests of Asia – is amazingly tenacious, durable and hardy.

Four-Phalaenopsis is a monopodial epiphyte belonging to the number of medium-sized orchids. In general, he is similar to his heirs – both in leaves, and in structure, and in development cycles. But still a little more modest and “simpler” in all respects.

The root system of phalaenopsis tetraspis is amazingly developed and strong. Thick, light green roots develop constantly and form a dense network. They are quite fragile, often directed upwards and knocked out of containers, resembling aerial roots and gradually drying out with insufficient air humidity.

One orchid is capable of releasing from 2 to 10 leaves. A new leaf can grow after each flowering, and at the same time. In tetraspis, the leaves are quite wide, elongated-oval, with a slightly pointed tip, with a central fold, folded at the very beginning and straightened into flat leaf plates as they grow.

The tip of the leaves most often gracefully bends. With a length of up to a maximum of 22 cm, the width of the leaves does not exceed 6 cm, the base is narrowed. The green of the phalaenopsis of the four-shield looks very elegant and elegant.
