Planting & Care
Plant peacock orchid bulbs in spring. Space the small bulbs, which are technically corms, 3 to 6 inches apart in moist, well-draining soil and 3 to 5 inches deep.
Growing peacock orchids prefer full sun and like the hot afternoon sun, particularly in colder zones. Plant peacock orchid bulbs in masses for a dramatic show in the summer landscape.

Care:
  • Peacock orchid care involves watering regularly, as they like damp soil and hot afternoon sunlight.
  • Keep soil moist and your Acidanthera blooms may continue until frost.

  • I leave the corms in my northern zone 7 garden in the ground for the winter and have not had difficulty with blooms the following year.
  • If you choose to try leaving them in the ground, provide a heavy layer of mulch over them for the winter.


Special Feature:
Hedge, screen background. In Hawaii, flowers are sometimes used in leis.
