Rhynchostylis retusa (also called Foxtail Orchid) is an exotic blooming orchid, belonging to Vanda alliance. The orchid has a bunch consisting of 100 more than pink-spotted white flowers.

The plant is found in semi-deciduous and deciduous dry lowland forests woodlands at elevations of sealevel to 700 m, native to Malaya, Singapore, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Ấn Độ.

They have stout, repent, short stem carrying to 12, curved, fleshy, deeply channeled, keeld, retuse apically leaves and blooms on an axillary, pendant, to 60 cm long, racemose, densely many flowered, cylindrical inflorescence that occurs in the winter and early spring.

The plants die if the leaves are wet frequently. They prefer moderate waterings, heavy fertilizing, and very bright shade to direct morning light. Flowering is usually summer into fall. Called Chintaranam in Telugu, the plant is most common in North-East, Orissa and Andhra Pradesh. Medicinally the plant is used to treat wounds, cuts and bruishes. Due to bio-piracy, the plant is in the verge of extinction in Ấn Độ. Rhychostylis Retusa is recognized as the state flower of Arunachal Pradesh.
