Habenaria are really lovely plants and not difficult to grow either.

Carnea also comes in a pale pink.
Rhodocheila comes in pink orange and yellow shades. 8)

Cheers.

Hi Hans

I think your Hab is H.malleifera.

Regards

Can I ask how long you have had this Hab? Reason I ask is they are quite difficult to keep over winter and one minute seem fine but gone the next in to a mulch. Last years photos below.

Dave,
this is a good question! I grow this plant for 10 years and keep it frost free over the winter in my house like Pleiones (0C - +10C max.), because I am not sure about the hardiness in my country. The last year I have changed the substrate, now I use a normal garden soil with grit and bims, and now it is flowering very well and is growing much better. When the plant starts to grow I put the pot outdoors (not sunny) where we have 2000 - 2500m rain/year.
