Almost hardy orchid with very large flowers
Availability: In stock

-May be shipped bare root in early spring, as they don't have any new roots then.- An almost-hardy orchid, with flowers almost as big as the whole plant. Some species are frost tender; this one takes at least 25F in excellent draining soil. They do very well here under fir or pine trees, the fallen needles giving them protection in winter. In colder regions they can be wintered over on a cool, bright windowsill. Pleione start making new roots mid spring, about right in the middle of their blooming season. They should be watered little October until right after bloom.
