Caring for Londisa

Light

As much morning light as possible for optimal flowering. If your orchid is receiving enough light the leaves will be an apple green colour. Too much light = yellow leaves. Too little = dark leaves.

Water & humidity

Burragearas like moist soil while they are flowering & producing new leaves in summer. As autumn approaches & the plant stops producing new leaves, reduce watering to once every 2-3 weeks, allowing the soil to dry out. Only increase watering again when new buds appear in Spring. This plant needs high humidity and should be misted regularly with water. Read our humidity tips here.

Feeding

During flowering feed your orchid regularly with a special fertiliser for blooming orchids. After blooming, feed with a fertiliser high in Nitrogen. Reduce feeding in winter. 

Re-potting

Re-pot every 2-3 years in spring after flowering. Use a special orchid mix.

Atrium Top Tip

Once the flowers have shrivelled, cut the flowering stem at the base. This encourages the plant to produce new shoots that will flower again. 

Quirky plant fact

The Burrageara is a descendent of a cross between Miltonia and Oncidium orchids, which originate from South America. They grow high in the trees or on rocks, clinging on with their aerial roots. These roots feed on morning dew and rain.
