Water BroughtoniaTenere Umido
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. Let's wet abundantly with about 1-2 glasses of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 1-2 weeks .

These plants have a pendolous deportment. The Broughtonia Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a bluepurplepink colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Broughtonia has a shrub- like development.

Light BroughtoniaPosizione luminosa
We suggest to leave this plant in a place where it is not directly exposed to solar rays, which might ruin its leaves; in any case it is best to choose a very bright spot. 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.We advise cultivating the the Broughtonia in a covered place, in an apartment or green house, as they don't like temperatures below 15°C: during late Spring they can be moved outdoors.
