Garden Orchids from Phytesia
Bletilla Ochracea is easily cultivated
They are perfect for beginners.
A soil rich in humus, light, well drained, has their preference. Drainage is important because their pseudo-bubble is sensitive to stagnant moisture. If your floor is compact, don’t panic! Prepare a planting hole (much larger, in anticipation of spontaneous multiplication of pseudo-bulbs) lined in the bottom by a drainage layer and filled with suitable soil.
The addition of a fertilizer rich in potassium will ensure a good replenishment of reserves and therefore a better flowering the following year. This contribution can be made during the vegetation phase.
This Asian genus includes the simplest garden perennial orchids to grow. They are perfect for beginners. Very proliferous, they will form after a few years of pretty clumps that can contain 20-30 plants and can measure up to 80 or 90 cm.
Flowering takes place in early summer (June-July). The most famous varieties have many small pink or purple flowers. Varieties with white or yellow flowers also exist but are less vigorous.
