Dormant over Summer, this orchid has two leaves flat on the ground and a single flower on a stem to 15cm high. After the flower has closed the stem may grow to over 25cm if the flower has been pollinated. The leaves usually start drying off in November and watering should be reduced. After the leaves have gone brown the plant should get only a light sprinkle every couple of weeks, just enough to prevent the underground tuber from drying off.
