Terrestrial Orchids do not required the special media and conditions of other epiphyte orchids (ie, the ones whose native habit is to grow on the sides of trees in the rain forests). These will do well planted into the ground, they are not fussy and will quickly naturalize. This group is native to Southeastern Asia and the Philippine Islands and have recently become very popular in the US.

Bletilla yokohama or 'Kate' is a popular, relatively rare cultivar. It has pretty veined, strapped, leaves, and is an almost constant warm season bloomer in pastel yellow and orange. Flowers are born on long stems above the plant and have a classic orchid shape in a miniature form, complete with the small spots and speckles.

They are semi-tropical, and must be protected from freezing temperatures. However, in cold climates they are easy to grow in pots so they can be wintered over indoors, or can be acclimated to grow as house plants year round.

Condition: One (1) well rooted starter size plant growing and shipped in a 4 inch diameter plastic pot.

Plant will be a minimum of about 6 to 8 inches tall and unlikely to have bloom or bud at the time of shipping.
