Buy Miltoniopsis 'Herr Alexander' pansy orchid: flowers spread a mild honey scent on a hot summer's day.

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: these plants do not need to grow in compost, but if potting up, use a specialist orchid compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: plant approximately 65cm
  • Number of stems: 2 flower stems
  • Pot cover: choose a 12.5cm orchid pot cover to give a good fit over the pot.

    This gorgeous pansy orchid has impressively large (up to 10cm across) pure white blooms, each with a yellow and purple eye. The flowers also have a light honey perfume, which becomes more noticeable on a hot summers day. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Water weekly by sitting the pot in a tray of water (or the kitchen sink) for 15 minutes so it can soak up as much as they like, then leave it to drain throughly before moving it back into position. Maintain temperatures around 15-24°C and keep them in a bright spot with protection from direct sunshine during spring and summer. Don't worry if the roots grow outside the pot. In their native environment, they grow in the crooks of branches, and use these aerial roots to absorb water from the air. They do not mind being overcrowded in their pots, so you only need to repot them when the growth starts to suffer.
