Phalaenopsis Kenanga is an epiphytic growing, primary orchid hybrid, a crossing between the species orchids Phalaenopsis javanica (seed parent) and Phalaenopsis amboinensis (pollen parent). Phalaenopsis Kenanga has been registered with the Royal Horticultural Society by A.S.Parnata in the year 1981. Flowers get a size of about 4 cm in diameter and are born on inflorescences reaching lengths up to about 40 cm. The yellow flowers with red markings are slightly fragrant, but the spicy scent is not everbody´s darling. The tropical Phalaenopsis hybrid requires intermediate to warm temperatures and a shady location. Plants should be kept humid, but not wet. Never cut the inflorescence, before not completely dried out,
as it may rebloom several times.
