Size: 6cm pot
Origin: Eastern Asia
Light: Bright indirect light
Watering: Allow the top 2-3 cm of the soil to dry between waterings while the plant is actively growing, usually from spring through autumn. Reduce watering frequency in winter if light levels are lower.
Feeding: Use half the recommended dose of a potash liquid fertilizer every few weeks from spring to autumn, or whenever you can see active growth.
Soil: Equal parts of orchid compost, multipurpose compost and perlite.
Tip: Do not remove the flower stalks as more flowers will appear from the stumps. This plant is safe around pets and children. Keep away from direct light and radiators. Once the plant has settled at home, we recommend repotting into a slightly larger pot.
