Calanthe rubens Ridl. 1890
I used to grow many plants of Calanthe rubens. They would put a beautiful show in early winter. However eventually I gave all my plants away. Mainly because I acquired larger, showier hybrids that would bloom for a longer time. However I still remember them fondly there were they first Calanthe I ever cultivated and they would bloom very well with little care.
