Bletila Striata

Best grown in organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained soil in part shade.

 

Some afternoon shade is essential in hot summers. Plant corm-like pseudobulbs to 3” deep in spring.

 

After flowering, continue to provide regular moisture to plants for the remainder of the growing season. May not be reliably winter hardy throughout USDA Zone 5 where a winter mulch is advisable. Will naturalize over time in optimum growing conditions by short rhizomes.
