Secrets to success

 

Temperature: Preferred temperature of 21°C and above, certainly no lower than 15°C.

 

Light: Bright indirect light is best. Direct sun would scorch the leaves.

 

Water: T.bipinnatifidum like moist soil, reduce watering in winter. Air humidity: Enjoys higher humidity - this can be achieved with misting, grouping plants together, using a humidifier or adding clean pebbles to a shallow water-filled tray and place the plant on top, as the water evaporates it will boost the humidity around the plant.

 

Fertilising: Feed monthly during the growing season - use half the recommended dosage of fertiliser.

 

Potting mix: A well draining mix with orchid bark and perlite. 

 

This plant is toxic, keep out of reach of pets and children.
