Peacock Orchids

What is the best thing to feed them? I used bone meal in the soil when they were planted. They haven’t bloomed yet, just the long green stalks now. I am in Mesa Arizona. Thanks!

ANSWERS

I would suggest an evenly balanced time-release, granular or water-soluble fertilizer, used in accordance to package directions.

Can You Plant Peacock Orchid With Vinca Cover Plants

I have a large outdoor planter with vinca. Can I plant peacock orchid in the same planter or will the vinca choke out the orchid?

ANSWERS

It is not recommended to plant vinca minor (periwinkle) near other specimens in the flower bed or garden, as it may overtake and choke out valuable plantings. For more information on vinca minor, please visit the following link:

Corms From Peacock Orchid

What to do with the baby corms which form on the mother corm of the peacock orchid for overwintering in zone 4 – borderline coastal Maine? All have been dug, cleaned of soil and drying.

ANSWERS

Leave the baby corms attached to the mother corms during storage and through planting.

When they are large enough in 2 to 3 years they can be divided.

I planted over 40 peacock orchid corms in the spring and have beautiful foliage, but not a single flower. Do they usually bloom in their first year?

Bulbs Peacock Orchid

Where can I find these? I saw peacock orchid plants in the UK but have not been able to find a supplier in South Africa. Bulbs are available, but they do not deliver outside the UK. Any suggestions where I can order some in South Africa, as I am desperate?

ANSWERS

Unfortunately, we cannot recommend specific suppliers. If there is a university near you with a horticulture program, an extension agent or other staff there may be able to help you track them down. Gardening societies and clubs can be another good resource.
