Brassia

Care tips

The best spot

A light spot, but no direct sunlight.

Temperature
18-24 ˚C.

Water  
Dip 10 minutes in lukewarm water every week. Let it leak out afterwards.

After blooming
Cut the old branch completely when the Brassia has finished blooming. The branch that has given flowers will not bloom again. After the blooming period has ended for the Brassia Orchid, it requires several weeks of rest, which means the temperature will need to be kept between 16 to 18 ˚C, for example in a guest room. Do not place the plant in the dark. Water the plant only once every two weeks for a minimum of eight weeks. One or more new shoots then will develop. When the shoots are fully grown, place the plant in your room again with normal temperatures and give water when needed. This way you can enjoy the plant again and again!
