Growing tips:

- This impressive ground orchid thrives in well areated soils.
- It grows usually in the ground, in the humus or decomposed leaves of spare open forests.
- Grow well in shade to semi shade.
- Regular watering required - especially in the hot summer months.
- A potting mix of equal parts of 2 to 4 cms pieces of coconut husk chips, wood charcoal, brick bats and dry manure pieces is perfect. Add a teaspoon of bonemeal to five litres of this mixture.
- Plants can be potted using this mix. If you are growing them in the ground - we would prefer a raised bed using this mix. (As dug out beds may get flooded in the monsoon)
