These plants are shrubs. Growing the stems and branches tend to develop downwards. This plant in the summer assumes a purplepinkwhite colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
Avoid excessively sunny places; we suggest to put the The in a partially shady spot. These plants are rustic in the areas with a Mediterranean climate, therefore they can be grown outside.These plants prefer very bright places, but we should avoid direct sunrays, especially during the hottest days of the year.
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 1-2 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. 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.
A treatment based on mineral oil or insecticide should be applied only in cases of infesting by parasites, paying attention not to vaporize the flowers.
Cultivate in a very well drained soil.
