Pleonie Orchid Formosanum
Native to the Himalayas, Pleonies are mostly a ground dweller, however some species and hybrids thrive in an epiphytic situation. Good drainage is essential and any potting should be done in a fine orchid mix with scoria added to the base of the pots. Perfect specimens in bowls and pots, also thrive when planted inside tree stumps. They do like their tucker, and respond well to tomato style liquid fertilisers. We had a selection of Pleonies potted last season, they were sold in a matter of days highlighting the popularity of these little treasures. Please note these are vastly different to the ‘Chinese ground orchid’ (Bletilla Straiata). Early spring BLOOMING.
