Article 19Bletilla Striata Orchids
Bletilla's are a wonderful easy to grow hardy ground orchid. Just follow these few simple suggestions and you should have no trouble enjoying your orchid for years to come.
Light: light shade to full sun.
Planting: plant 5cm deep in humus rich soil with excellent drainage. I would recommend mixing a small amount of bird gravel in with the soil or use cactus soil.
Moisture: regular watering. Don't allow to dry out but be careful not to over water
Fertilizing: feed regularly with a well balanced liquid fertilizer
