Pleione formosana group

This is my pot of Pleione formosana - just flowering now. This species is easy to grow outdoors, if you respect it's needs: take extreme care with watering when the new growth starts building roots (too much water kills the roots - to little lets them dry out and die). If the new roots do not grow properly, the new growth will be small and will not flower. Secondly - once the roots are there, I give them plenty of water during the growing phase, especially during hot days. I get the most flowers when the summer is rainy, and not too hot.
