Please note: We work with live products so the species depicted may different from the photos due to seasonal availability.
Home care: The two succulents prefer a brightly lit, sunny spot. During the growing season, water thoroughly - making sure the excess water drains away freely. Then, when the compost has dried out, repeat the process. Water very sparingly in winter.
The orchid is best placed on a sunny windowsill during the winter months. During the summer, the plant prefers shelter from strong afternoon sun. Water from the bottom by sitting the plant in a bowl of water for one hour once a week and allow to drain. Rainwater is preferred over tap water. When flowers have finished, snip off at the stem and maintain regular watering and new growth should appear in time. Mist occasionally to maintain a humid environment which the plant enjoys in the wild. Apply a liquid fertiliser fortnightly from spring to summer. Maintain a stable temperature between 16-21°C.
