Planting

Dactylorhiza demand rich and well-aired substrate because they need from the freshness and from the humidity. Most Dactylorhiza are fond of wet to sodden areas and can be cultivated at the banks of ponds or bodies of water.

For optimal results, Phytesia also recommends a specific substrate for garden orchids of the genus Dactylorhiza.

This ready-to-use mixture is suitable for planting 2 or 3 garden orchids.  

 

Exposure

Dactylorhiza adapt to the sun (if the soil remains moist) as partial shade.

 

Growth Phase…

During the winter, the plant persists in bulb form. Dactylorhiza are very cold-resistant orchids and do not require any special protection in winter.

The Dactylorhiza plants emerge as of April and spread their foliage during spring. The flowers appear at the end of spring (May, June).

In autumn, the foliage yellows then fades before disappearing completely for the winter dormancy period. Over the years and following the successive growth and dormancy cycles, Dactylorhiza not only become stronger but also multiply, thanks to the annual appearance of new bulbs.
