A delicate looking orchid, usually found growing in the same conditions like the pitcher plants – they can be as well, cultivated together in the garden. One singe leaf and 1-3 fragrant pink flowers, light pink with a darker, fringed lip.
In moist meadows it can also be found associated with Castilleja, Polygala senega, Lobelia spicata and few other species…
For those who have the abilities to grow orchids; otherwise please don’t buy.
Germination: like for all orchids, difficult and best to use ‘in vitro’ techniques. Few people claim they have germinated them by sowing close to another orchid in the garden, where the soil already contains the necessary mycorrhiza.
