The famous Darwin orchid, with large white flowers accented by 12-inch long nectary spurs! Darwin predicted the pollinator to be a moth with a 12-inch long proboscis. Years later, it was discovered to be true. The moth, Xanthopan morgani praedicta, named for Darwins prediction of such a moth, was found to be the official pollinator. This species, native to the island of Madagascar, typically flowers around the end of December to early January. Grow in medium to high light and water when the potting media just dries out. A rare orchid in today's market, our plants are a vigorous batch from a pollination done in 2020 that we expect will reach blooming size by 2024 or 2025.
