dancing ladies or butterfly orchid

  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)

  • Number of stems: 3 flower stems
  • Pot cover: choose a 10.5cm pot cover to give a good fit over the pot

    Fresh green, strap-shaped foliage is topped with branching sprays that are laden with an abundance of small, creamy coloured flowers, each with a tiny, orange-yellow eye. The flowers themselves may not be large, but they appear in such generous numbers that they create a soft, flothy haze, which can last for several weeks.

    Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water weekly by sitting the pot in a tray of water (or the kitchen sink) for 15 minutes so it can soak up as much as it likes, then leave it to drain thoroughly before moving it back into position. Keep it in a bright spot with protection from direct sunshine during spring and summer, and don't worry if the roots grow outside the pot. In their native environment, they grow in the crooks of branches, and use these aerial roots to absorb water from the air. They do not mind being overcrowded in their pots, so you only need to repot them when the growth starts to suffer.
