Bletilla striata – 365 days of orchids – day 1235

One of our coolest growing species today, a hardy species from China, Korea and Japan.- Bletilla striata can be grown as a garden plant but we keep in in our temperate section with a minimum of 6C.

We grow this species in pots  in a terrestrail mix of soil based compost, composted bark and grit. The species becomes dormant in the winter when we stop watering unitl the spring when the new leaves emerge followed by the delicate flowers on thin stems.
