During this time of year the The Galearis can be grown outdoors. We suggest avoiding exposing orchids to direct sunlight, although they should be placed in a very bright location.The Galearis needs to be located in a sunny place, but not directly exposed to the solar rays.
The Galearis develops like a shrub. This plant in the winter assumes a purplepinkwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 50 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards.
Orchids are plants which request periodic fertilization, using specific products for orchids, which usually aren’t too rich: it is recommendable to avoid leaving fertilizing solutions on the roots. Usually orchids should be fertilized every 20-25 days, interrupting fertilization during flowering.
The Galearis Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 1-2 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 1-2 glasses of water . To moisten the soil of the orchids homogenously we can water them by immersion, soaking the vases up to the edge in demineralized water, and leaving it until the top part of the substratum is moist; let's drain the excess water and then put the containers back in place.
If we notice the presence of cochineals or of other insects we can practice a treatment based on mineral oil or other insecticide, being careful to vaporize only the foliage.
Locate in a soil for orchids, not too drained.
