Like all varieties of this family, absorbs moisture in the air Its leaves capture water droplets in suspension.

Install it in a hot and humid place (Kitchen, bathroom), away from the sun.

During the blooming, which lasts up to three months, water by pouring a little water in the rosette. It is best to avoid having the roots in water.

The dendrobium, sensual

Dintrieur plants in winter flowersA native of a triangle formed by the Himalayas, southern Japan and New Zealand, is a dendrobium epiphytic orchid. We love the elegant flowers with yellow petals, white or pink lip surrounding a different hue. It's an easy roommate who requires little care.

Install it in a light and airy place, away from direct sunlight.

Like all orchids, it does not support standing water: immerse the roots or spray them with water.

After flowering, put it to rest six to eight weeks in the fridge, without fertilizer and with little water. It is only when the new buds begin to bloom, that routine maintenance can resume.

The calla lily, modern

The calla lily love the light, place it in a sunny location and make sure to keep the wet soil with regular watering.

In the fall stop watering and keep it in a cool, sheltered from frost. In the spring, wake the plant by watering it and placing it in a warm place.
