The Helleborine has a shrub- like development. These plants have an erect, columnar development. The Helleborine is medium in size and 50 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a purplepinkwhite colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
This plant prefers very luminous locations, during this period of the year it is best to avoid direct exposure to solar rays. These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.Let's locate the plants so that they can enjoy a good diffused brightness, but someplace where they are not directly hit by solar rays.
During this period of the year the The Helleborine needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let’s irrigate every 1-2 weeks with about 1-2 glasses of water . Watering by immersion is suggested for orchids: it consists in soaking the containers in water up to the edge, when the soil is moist let's take out the vases and let the excess water drain before putting them back in place.
An insecticide treatment should be applied only if damaging insects have been seen on the plant; vaporizing the product we avoid spraying it on the flowers.
These orchids prefer slightly humid soils.
