Polychilos is a subgenus within the renowned orchid genus Phalaenopsis. These orchids are relatively easy to cultivate, but their care requirements differ from the typical no-identification (NOID) orchids commonly found in grocery stores. The primary distinction lies in temperature; Polychilos thrives in warmer and more humid conditions, which promotes vigorous growth. Additionally, these orchids are often pleasantly fragrant and can exhibit sequential flowering from a single spike. Under optimal culture they can flower any or all year round.

There are numerous complex hybrids that combine traits of Polychilos and Phalaenopsis. These hybrids are generally easier to grow due to their adaptability to a wider range of environments. For those new to cultivating Polychilos, starting with a hybrid is recommended.
