Pleione orchids care
The Pleione orchid belongs to the family of Orchidaceous plants, one of the largest families of plants known to man. Although orchids have a reputation of being difficult to care for, with a little attention, watering, and proper nutrition, orchids are very rewarding plants. This also applies to the garden orchid. Provide a place with not too much direct sunlight, give plenty of water during the flowering period and keep your plants inside until the weather starts warming up. That’s all really. Your plant will reward you with a mass of stunning flowers and sturdy dark green leaves. Pleione orchids need to overwinter in a cool and dry and frost-free environment. For example, in a greenhouse or conservatory. Even the garden shed is ideal. Your plants will start growing and flowering again come springtime.
