Product info

Plant care

Oncium meirax requires a tree bark based soil mix. Araflora offers a special orchid mix, based on pine tree bark, see 'pine bark course' (orchid bark). Contrary to the soil, the air ought to always be moist. This can be achieved by growing other plants in the proximity or by spraying the leafs with water in the morning. The orchid need a lot of light, so keep Oncium meirax in a place out of the shadow. The stalk that has the flowers on it, can grow to be very high. This stalk is therefore suitable to attach to a stick or lead trough a trellis work.
