Zygopetalum orchids are among the easiest to grow. Tolerant of a wide variety of growing conditions, these unique plants have complex bloom patterns that often include green and purple mottling. Keep evenly moist but not sopping wet to entice these beauties to root and spike. Leaves should look yellow-green during the summer and deep green leaves indicate too low of light.
Light: Bright indirect preferred.
Water: Water when top of media is nearly dry (about once or twice a week) but do not allow to sit in water. Intolerant of poor draining mixes, decrease watering in winter.
Potting media: Medium-fine bark+perlite mix. Divide and repot every 3 years, taking care not to damage the delicate roots.
Temp: 50F min, 90F max.
Humidity: 50-75% preferred.
Fertilizing: 20-20-20 fertilizer diluted to 1/2 recommended strength every other watering. Decrease in winter. Flush pot occassionally to prevent salt buildup.
