Pterostylis curta

Description

This is a very easy to grow terrestrial orchid from Australia. Plants arise from a small corm and can colonize a large pot very quickly.


Best grown like Pleione, in a large, shallow "bulb pot" in a 3:1 soil to perlite mix. At our nursery, we keep the plants moderately moist and lightly fed throughout the growing cycle. When the plants start to look like they are dying we stop watering them.  We don't restart watering them until green leaves again develop. Corms can be collected while the plant is dormant or just leave em alone and they will continue to take over their pot. New plants will even develop from roots sticking out of drain holes.

Definitely a conversation starter!
