Plant care

Liparis nakaharai likes light, but shouldn't be kept in direct sunlight. In the winter it should get slightly more light. The ideal temperature for Liparis nakaharai is around 25⁰C, with slightly colder nights. Don't let the temperature drop below 15⁰C or rise above 30⁰C. The humidity should be quite high, around 80%. Raising the humidity at night will stimulate the production of flowers. For the best results, water the plant using rainwater or distilled water whenever the substrate dries slightly. In practice this will be watering three to five times a week. Together with a proper humidity, this will help prevent infections and disease. Orchid-mix will be a suitable substrate. You can also attach the plant to a piece of bark. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. Make sure moisture is able to drain from it. Fertilize with caution. Old flowers can be cut from the plant.
