Zygopetalum Orchid Mix

16.99 “Price excl. VAT: 14.97

This unusual orchid is ideal for the enthusiast. The slender-petalled, wax-like flowers are an interesting mix of green, plum and purple-blue and they produce a fresh, sweet scent in the early morning, while the green foliage is often infused with black spots and streaks.

Water weekly by sitting the pot in a tray of water (or the kitchen sink) for 15 minutes so it can soak up as much as it likes, then leave it to drain thoroughly before moving it back into position. Maintain temperatures around 15-24°C and keep it in a bright spot with protection from direct sunshine during spring and summer. Don’t worry if the roots grow outside the pot. In their native environment, they grow in the crooks of branches, and use these aerial roots to absorb water from the air. They do not mind being overcrowded in their pots, so you only need to repot them when the growth starts to suffer.
