Holcoglossum is a small genus of epiphytes that includes 15 known species, all found in South East Asia.

Originally, some species were originally identified as “Vanda” and were later transferred to this genus. The differences between the two genera can be observed in both, the flowers and the leaves.

The plants can grow mounted or in perforated pots with the roots hanging out, or in baskets with suitable well drained potting mix. All species require light, some grow in full sun, and cool to warm temperatures.

The inflorescence is erect and tall and bears numerous flowers that are showy, average size, fragrant and relative long living. The flowers unique and self-pollinating.

Most people say that Holcoglossums should be treated like "Vandas".

It is always wise to read as much as you can and improve your knowledge, before you buy any plants.
