Posted in Eclecticus, Orchids with tags , , , on October 19, 2009 by orchideae

This is an orchid that is named after me.

Eclecticus chungii is found in Thailand and Indochina.

Eclecticus chungii resembles Kingidium in appearance. It is grown in semi shade conditions and it flowers erratically in Singapore weather. The flowers last approximately a week in Singapore’s weather.
