Black Orchid Care Sheet
Monnierara Millennium Magic *Black Orchid'
One of the few true 'Black Orchids' and a truly awe-inspiring plant. Arching stems hold up to a dozen sparkling black flowers with a red flushed central column. Texture is waxy and has a glossy sheen.
Plants are deciduous, dropping their foliage in late fall with new leaves to follow in the spring. As with most plants of this kind, some lower/older leaf drop is normal at other times when season or growing conditions change. Water and fertilize regularly during the warm growing months, but reduce water and hold food during the fall and winter when plants are dormant.
Keep temperatures moderate (65-85 degrees) and away from warm blowing air to prevent bud blast (drop).
