Description

One of the most beautiful, frost-hardy terrestrial and xerophytic (grows on tree branches ) orchids in the world. Very large pink and mauve, or sometimes pure white flowers, arise from plump pseudobulbs in earliest spring, the lanceolate leaves appearing later. Fresh seed collected here each year.

Sowing Advice

Sow dust-like seeds onto wet sphagnum moss and keep in a cool permanently moist spot, for example a north facing bedroom window sill. A closed propagator with NO HEAT is fine. Within 6-12 months tiny bulbils should appear. Allow to grow in the moss until grape-sized before growing on and flowering in a 3 inch pot full of damp moss.
