Olantanthera florentii / Jinbaisou ジンバイソウ

 
Olantanthera florentii is a perennial orchid found in forest beds; the stems, somewhat thin, 20-40cm in height, have green, vertical ridges on them. Leaves, 2 in number, each opposite at the base, are oblong, measuring 5-12cm in length, glossy, and the margins shrunk in a wavy way. On the stems, there exist some small-scale-like leaves in an alternate phyllotaxis way. Green flowers, 5-10 in number, bloom in a racemose arrangement on the stem tops. Sepals and petals are approximately 5cm in length, lips about 1cm, spurs 1.5-2cm long, curving downwards.
