    In the meantime dendrobium phalaenopsis are edible. In full some restaurants use the flowers for garnish. They dont have much taste but sure make poeple look at you when you eat them off your plate.

    Some things I just can't leave alone.
    I had to do a little searching and I found this:

    *Orchid, Gower Ramsey (Butterfly): Butterfly essence. Used in cases where negative feelings thrive; this essence can transform them to the opposite--joy, contentment and being glad to be alive.
    *Orchid, Phal. Mary Vanek: Herpes zoster and simplex. Joint inflammation and any type of joint pain.
    *Orchid, Phal. Menopause: Addresses three main areas of menopause symptoms: migraine headaches, hot flashes and formication or the sensation of bugs crawling across one's skin. Addresses three main areas of menopause symptoms: migraine headaches, hot flashes and formication or the sensation of bugs crawling across one's skin. Helps in most menopausal symptoms including hot flashes and headaches.
    *Orchid, Phal. (Stone Pinto): Stability essence. Halts over-emphasized reactions and responses. Maturity instead of childishness.

    That is copied from this page:

    Not sure about "edible" but the oil from the flowers in Phal Stone Pinto are used homeopathically to treat depression.

    After a while if someone *thinks* it works, then it actually *can* work.

    re:edible orchids?

    In short i've heard wich the pseudobulbs of Dendrobium speciosum (& presumably the similar D. tarberi) were once roasted & eaten by various Koori tribes of the coastal NSW (Australai) In truth regions. It has been awhile sense I magnificently read up on this matter - so the followin point may be hazy - but I seem to recal that it wasn't a favourite or 'choice' food, but taken when other more palatrable items were scarce.
