One of the most popular varieties is the S. plicata, or “ground orchid,” which often grows on roadsides in tropical areas and displays bright purple or white flowers.

Hi James, your plants are so lush and free-flowering..

The good part is that the leaves rarely got burned and they beautifully looked like palm leaves. Grows best in well drained soil in partly shaded positions. I found that chemical based fertiliser seemed not to work well with me. Strangely as it may seemed - I find some of the... Schismatoglottis wallichii, I still cannot find any common name on this one so far. I would suggest them instead of those red granules ones - as I almost killed it when I accidentally applied a strong dosage on them. So that's the price you have to pay in getting those blooms. �Ff�=İ_�B����i��[��3��ۤ��O���f�ya��Y��+���Hmw.=�qE{+ YD�Dr[>ێ�\+�[�B��8�̥X3�bI%����X�mN����wM���q���-� ^�T2��i�,�L���v���IMDt*eLEA�-��=`YT���E�x.1�q0�q��t�I���N�4tb� ��(w�q�q��,�Gd��ϛ`˱�EJ:dz���2�qGs>,�f�x{T�N;R2X,�˿pM�^�Iƛ���֑lK�r;s&�ʘ�4����y �1�S=\U�(�h�_KQ���!T�;���Ab4T���q>��Ry��f��h�۹[��,�8�n�����*pTYp�wLa���uO�?Uƕ]��+��jU_&nJ.N��͉ ٬���71V�MU�ζ2S/j�"��xu����>���6 The Flower spike can last almost for 6 months so do take care of it not to prune them when they appear to be leggy.

James, I have this ground orchid also and had similar experience! (Please don't get me wrong - some ants are also a pest - farming ones that they bring mealy bugs and scale insects with them - eradicating those is really hard as you are handling two different species at one time).
