Phalaenopsis tetraspis fragrance

Four-leaf Phalaenopsis, in contrast to varietal hybrids, surprises with a rather strong aroma. In it you can catch the alcoholic-cognac notes mixed with thin trails of lily of the valley perfume and a sweet aftertaste of ripe fruit.

To assess the smell of phalaenopsis tetraspis, you will have to wait until the 3rd – 4th day after the beginning of dissolution. The smell and its nuances change from the first flowering on one peduncle to the last, as a rule, enhancing grassy and vanilla notes (from flower to flower).

And the most pleasant surprise from this type of phalaenopsis is the aroma not of the night, but of the day. It appears only in sunny weather at the height of the day and pleases before sunset.
Phalaenopsis tetraspis (Phalaenopsis tetraspis) C1
Varieties of phalaenopsis four-shield
Despite the fact that tetraspis remains one of the most recognizable species of orchids, its clones are increasingly found on sale – breeding forms with improved color characteristics.

The brightest white-red variations are characteristic of the tetraploid, in the name of which the prefix C1 is present. This plant almost replaced the original species tetraspis from the catalogs.

Of the varieties or clones of the plant, ‘Red and White’ is also known with its almost completely red flowers and red buds.

A rarer shade of color boasts a very expensive and rare variety ‘Cofee’, which is famous for its beige-coffee-brown “replacement” of the red shade. The purple buds of this orchid are covered with dashes, after blooming they surprise with unusual brown tones. Another coffee variety is almost the most expensive phalaenopsis – LFW1.

The latest novelties among tetraspis are ‘Purple Blue’ with a fuchsia-lilac shade of petals and ‘Blue Steal’ with a grayish-faded beige shade.

Phalaenopsis tetraspis growing conditions
This species orchid is rightly dubbed a Spartan. She can argue with many relatives in the status of a plant unpretentious and hardy. But under one condition – protection from the cold and the right choice of lighting.
In order for tetraspis to become truly growing replenishment of the collection almost by itself, the conditions for it must be selected carefully and correctly. This is a special orchid that loves high temperatures and soft light.
