Spathoglottis also known as “garden orchids,” make great domestic garden plants and are an easy introduction to the world of orchid cultivation for beginners. Known for their large, showy flowers; they come in a wide variety of colours and sizes.
They are tropical orchids and they thrive in a warm, wet environment. They are terrestrial, which means they make an ideal orchid for ground beds in tropical landscape gardens. Many Spathoglottis species can also be easily cultivated in pots. Their flowers range from purple to white to yellow, with lots of variety.
