Habenaria radiata comes in the form of small, pea sized tubers and can be planted in pots, window-boxes or in the garden. If you prefer the White Egret Flower in a planter, do use one with holes in the base with a layer of pot shards or clay pellets in the bottom. Improve potting soil with quite a bit of sharp sand and compost or just use some perlite and sphagnum moss as potting medium. Plant the tubers at 1 cm from the top of the pot and 10 cm apart. Cover with a light covering of soil and press firmly down. Immediately after planting, generously water your White Egret Flower.
The Habenaria should be sprayed with rain water (preferably) and during the summer the soil must be consistently, fairly moist. Add regular feeds of plant food when watering, during the flowering season (summer) but only half the recommended dose. This plant flowers in the summer. If growing indoors to enjoy the flowers, the potted plant can go outdoors again after flowering.
Habenaria radiata is a variety of dwarf orchid from the humid mountain ranges of Japan, Korea, China and Russia. The so-called White Egret Flower has petals resembling that of the bird's wings. This evocative plant makes a lovely house plant and can easily go outdoors to a sunny spot after flowering.
