The Helleborine has a shrub- like development. These plants have an erect, columnar development. The Helleborine is medium in size and 50 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a purplepinkwhite colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
Let's place the The Helleborine in a very bright place; avoiding direct exposure to sunrays, which could damage its leaves. The Helleborine can bear minimum temperatures a few degrees below zero; in general during the Spring it would be grown outdoors without any problems, but if the harsh temperatures should go down it is advised to cover it with non-woven fabric.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.
The Helleborine 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.
An insecticide treatment should be applied only if damaging insects have been seen on the plant; vaporizing the product we avoid spraying it on the flowers.
These orchids prefer slightly humid soils.
