  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: these plants do not need to grow in compost, but if potting up, use a specialist orchid compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: plant approximately 60cm
  • Number of stems: 2 flower stems

    The showy red and apricot-orange flowers of this complex hybrid have a slightly sweet fragrance (quite rare for an orchid), and each flower will bloom for up to 6 weeks.

    We've combined it here with our ornate hand-etched aluminium planter. Once unpacked, simply pop the plant into the pot to enjoy a striking instant display. Pot measures Ø17.5cm x H14cm.

  • Home care: Water weekly by sitting the plant 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. Maintain temperatures around 15-24°C and keep it in a bright spot with protection from direct sunshine during spring and summer.

    Don't worry if 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 don't mind being overcrowded in their pots, so you only need to repot them if growth starts to suffer.
