Plant care

Lemboglossum rosii grows best at a temperature around 20⁰C. Don't let the temperature drop below 5⁰C or rise above 25⁰C. A humidity of 60% is sufficient. The orchid needs a semi-light spot, avoiding direct sunlight. Water Lemboglossum rosii when the substrate has dried slightly, using rainwater or distilled water to prevent the accumulation of minerals. In practise this will be three to five times a week. Lemboglossum rosii needs the same amount of water all seasons. A proper airflow is important to prevent infections and disease. Orchid-mix will make a suitable substrate, but you can also attach it to a piece of bark. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. Make sure water is able to drain from it. This plant needs extra nutrition regularly. Old flowers can be cut from the plant.
