A fairly easy to grow landscaping plant and ornamental pot plant. Grows best in well drained soil in partly shaded positions. Will flower almost year-round in warm climates. May die down during winter in cool climates.
If you live in a warm environment such as central or southern Florida, ground orchids can do well in your flower beds almost year round. In other parts of the country, you can grow them in containers and bring them indoors when the weather begins to cool in the fall. Spathoglottis garden orchids are a terrestrial orchid, which means it developed in the soil instead of in the air on tree branches. Growing ground orchids is not much more difficult than growing other bedding plants, and you’ll be rewarded with 2-foot (61 cm.) spikes of brightly colored flowers that bloom almost continually throughout the growing season.
