<Tips for growing sagi-so orchids>


These orchids prefer full sun, but strong direct sunlight can damage their leaves and flowers. Protect the plants by providing shade or moving them to a shaded spot during hours of strong sunlight. A well-ventilated environment will help keep the plants healthy.

The orchids prefer well-drained soil. Prepare rich soil and avoid excessive moisture. Water the plants when the topsoil becomes dry to avoid excessive dryness. It is important to provide adequate water, especially during the growing and flowering seasons. 

The orchids are tuberous and so proper tuber management is required. Dig up tubers regularly and remove any that are rotten or damaged to keep the plants healthy.

  A neat and dainty beauty to accent tearooms 

The Japanese common name, sagi-so, which means white heron plant, is well deserved, for the white flowers express the height of delicacy.

This extraordinary work can be described as a masterpiece of the god who created flowers, and its neat beauty hints of a subtle coolness.
