Nun's Cap Orchic
I purchased a large, beautiful, blooming Nun's Cap Orchid yesterday at a yard sale. I know that it would do best in the shade. However, I live in a new development and our trees are not large enough to give me a good place to place this in the ground. I was wondering if...1. I can keep it in a large terra cotta pot and 2. How well would it do indoors?
Any knowledge, thoughts etc. about this would be appreciated. Thanks!
You can grow your orchid indoors. Here's directions.
Nun's Hood Orchids
I live where these orchids grow wild. They grow in fairly deep shade, in cool and moist jungle floors. I have grown a few of them in pots around my home and they do well as long as they are in a cool location, out of direct sun, in substantially large pots (mature plants are in 10") and are potted in a fairly light, porous media. I water them daily, so the well drained mix is essential.
thanks for the orchid ID - we have one too ...
