Eria javanica ‘Grace’- many, many star-like flowers grace this orchid

 Eria javanica ‘Grace’
     We just love it when common names for orchids make sense...this “Javanese Eria” grows and blooms best in low light and intermediate to warm temperature. We’ve grown it in intermediate to bright light and though we didn’t kill it, it didn’t look good and it never bloomed. We followed the instruction of an early orchid mentor of ours who said “if it’s not working, change it!” We did. They grow and bloom beneath other plants (probably like they do in nature). The blossoms are pretty, and surprisingly long lasting, too.
