Orchid not in bloom.

Plants in 6 cm pots


This beautiful orchid is a hybrid which was created in the Singapore Botanical Gardens in the 1950’s-
named for the wife of the British governor of Hong Kong and Singapore from 1958 to 1964.  By
combining an Arachnis Maggie Oei orchid with a Renanthera Coccinea orchid, the Aranthera orchid
is commonly known as the Anne Black Orchid which can produce splendid, tiny spider-like vermilion
flowers. The result was a stunning 2- to 3-foot-tall strong branch like structure, with vivid red
medium sized blooms. At first glance, it appears to be the very popular James Story orchid; however,
the Anne Black Orchid has larger blooms.
During rainy season the plant is in active growth and no watering is required. Only in summer and
sunny days a continuous misting or drenching the leaves and roots remains essential to keep the
plant cool and moist. The plant can withstand a lot of stress and such stressing also induces the
flowering- a perfect orchid for beginners!
The plant needs good nitrogenous fertiliser feeding during active growth and a food rich in Potash
and phosphorous during the flowering stages. They can be grown in pots of brick and charcoal or

planted in beds of soil with mulching and staked to keep them upright. Propagation is by stem
cuttings. The cultivars can be grown both as open cultivation or as intercrop under the coconut or
can be grown under 30 % shade net house.
