Asian atmosphere
This combination of Japanese jewel orchids brings Asia a little closer to home. The colours create a serene atmosphere in your garden. The flowers of the jewel orchid (Bletilla Striata) mix are blue, purple and white. Plant the tubers in the spring. The flowers bloom in the summer.
Space the tubers out when planting. The distance between plants is three times the width of the tuber. Plant the tuber the depth of three times the tuber's height. Plant the tubers in partial shade. Water the tuber immediately after planting. Then keep the soil moist. The bulbs come in organic packaging. Made of 100% natural materials and 100% recyclable!
All our flower bulbs have the A quality mark of the Holland Selection and come with a 100% guarantee that they will grow and bloom. You can be certain that the flower bulbs will grow.

Planting+
Plant the Chinese orchid tubers in a well-drained spot in humus rich soil that will stay moist throughout the summer, or improve the soil to the extent that it is sandy and humus rich – clay soil is not a problem. If the soil is too moist you can plant the tubers in a raised bed. A slightly shaded spot will be most appreciated by this hardy orchid. Full sun is OK, but beware of the soil drying out. The tubers must be planted 5 cm deep.
Care+
Bletilla striata is very undemanding. Just some extra water in periods of drought will be appreciated. The plants form a clump and can remain in the same place for many years. After 4 years the plant can be divided, but this is not strictly necessary. Hardy orchids in pots must not be allowed to dry out so do make sure that the soil is kept moist. Feed with an organic fertiliser in the spring but use half the recommended dosage as orchids generally do not require a lot of feeding.
