Brassavola

Brassavola I like the article

Irrigation BrassavolaTenere Umido
The Brassavola needs to be watered quite frequently, every 1-2 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 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.

Temperatures BrassavolaPosizione luminosa
Let's place the the Brassavola in a very bright place; avoiding direct exposure to sunrays, which could damage its leaves. These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15°C.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.
