Masdevallia Orchid Plant
Avidly sought by the Victorians in the mid to late 1800s, Masdevallias are making a colourful comeback in the gardening world. A stunning indoor orchid from Ecuador and Peru, this is a prolific bloomer, with unusual, tube-like orange flowers. Whether you keep it for yourself or give as a gift it is sure to be a real talking point! It comes complete with decorative snow-white Elho pot (not pictured) of 9cm.
Orchids thrive in bright indirect light and a maintained temperature. Avoid spots where the temperature will fluctuate a great deal. Ensure orchid is always moist. Avoid excess water or allow to completely dry out. One suggestion is to immerse the whole pot in water for 10 minutes every 1-2 weeks. an occasional watering with rainwater will also help to avoid any build up of salts in the roots. Mist regularly and feed every 2-3 weeks with orchid fertiliser. Orchids prefer their roots contained within small pots.
