These plants are perennial herbs. This plant in the spring, summer, autumn, winter assumes a purplepink colouring; it is small in size and can reach 45 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub.

Orchids in general favour a pretty moist soil; to water correctly it is advisable to water these plants by immersion, therefore soaking the containers in water up to the edge; when the water has reached the top part of the substratum we can take out the vases and let the excess water drain well. Letís avoid watering the the Nigritella nigra excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 glasses of water .
