Description

Spathoglottis plicata is an orchid species flowering almost throughout the year in other parts of Malaysia but in Perlis, mostly in April to May. The pseudobulbs of this species are close together and each with five leaves. The leaves are very variable in size, narrowly lanceolate, plicate, acute and measure at about 80 x 15 cm. It can produce two or three flowers that bloom only at one time. The distribution of this species occurs from India to the Pacific islands and Malaysia. This species is a very common plant found in poor grassland areas, roadsides and other open places (Boo et al., 2003).
