  • Care
  • Water your x Burrageara sparingly but regularly, preferably with tepid rain water or other soft water. The plant requires a lot of watering in the summer and you can even immerse it in a bucket of rain water as long as it has good drainage. Feed once a month - choose a fertiliser that you would use for flowering plants or tomatoes, with high potash content. Spray the plant to ensure a high degree of humidity. After flowering the flower stem can be cut away at the base. Each pseudobulb will only flower once but then immediately forms a new pseudobulb. When the plant becomes too large, you can repot into a larger pot. x Burrageara 'Nelly Isler' can be propagated by dividing and planting at least 3 'pseudobulbs' together in a new pot. Use a sharp knife to separate them and then plant in a well aerated orchid potting medium.
    Dormant period
    The x Burrageara grows new pseudobulbs usually in the autumn. At this point the plant is still growing. When they are mature and feel firm to the touch, the plant requires a rest period of approximately 8-12 weeks. The plant can then be stood in a cooler spot (about 16° C), water sparingly (once every 2 weeks) and do not feed. The potting medium should not be allowed to dry out completely. During the rest period new flower buds form, you can then move your x Burrageara 'Nelly Isler' to a warmer spot in the living room. Now you can continue to feed and water.

  • Specifics
  • The beautifully drawn flowers of the x Burrageara Orchid spread a wonderful scent, especially in the morning. It is a fairly easy house plant to grow that will attract many admiring glances.
    Orchid x Burrageara does not grow naturally in the wild as it is a cross pollination of descendants of Cochlioda x Odontoglossum, which are then crossed once more with Miltonia and Oncidium. These parent plants are originally from South America where they grow high in the trees of the forest as well as on rocks. The plant attaches itself with its aerial roots to bark and crevices in the rocks. The roots feed on the morning dew and rain. Because of these aerial roots, this type of orchid really does need exceptionally airy potting medium. The 'young' plants resemble the parent plants in terms of plant shape.
    Orchid x Burrageara belongs to the orchid family (Orchidaceae) which is a very exciting family to belong to. Orchids often try to resemble certain female insects in order to attract male insects of that particular type, for mating on their flowers. This false mating is used by the whole orchid family as a method of transferring the pollen on to the stamens, which then forms seed. This imitating of female insects can go really far as not just the shape of the flower but even the production of certain pheromones (a fast dissipating scent that can influence sexual behaviours) is used by the flowers to attract the males.
