Elisabeth’s Peristylus 
Family – Orchidaceae
Photographed at Kullu district, Himachal Pradesh 
Altitude – 1700 meters asl
Dated – 12 April 2019


wonderful terrstrial small green flowered orchid if you pull the roots out does it root back  in the same soil or do you have to plant it in pots and take daily care ?


Thanks … They may root back in the same soil depending on the favourable climatic conditions at that time. I found this orchid unexpectedly while i was searching for Morchella sp. It was growing in Apple orchard along borders in shady moist location. 


This is Diphylax griffithii now called Gennaria griffithii.

Thanks for sharing. 

Thanks … for correcting me. I was waiting for your reply as i was also uncertain about id because the altitude and flowering months were also not matching with P. elisabethae, however i had thought it might be early flowering due to low altitude. It matches Gennaria griffithii (Diphylax griffithii).
