Vigorous easy-care garden orchid which will shoot out many tall flower stems once established, often several times a year in warmer climates. Each flower looks spray-painted with a mist of purple freckles, darker at the tips.
DESCRIPTION: Hybrid of the native FNQ rainforest ground orchid, which multiplies in clumps creating a lush foliage display. White-purple shaded flowers year-round in warm climates; spring and summer in cooler parts of Australia. USE IN: Borders or mass planting as a feature in tropical garden settings, suited to containers. PLANTING: Plant in a full sun-partly shaded location in well-drained soil, although it might tolerate seasonally wet soils and sunny creek banks. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. CARE: For longest flowering and lush new growth provide additional water during dry periods and feed with a dilute liquid fertiliser monthly. If clumps become too large simply dig the plants up and gently separate the bulbs to plant elsewhere or share with neighbours! HEIGHT: 75cm H YOUR PLANTS: Supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
