The ground orchid is a perennial plant and it will be blossom within a year. The orchid needs a good peat-based, well-drained organic soil mix. But they are fairly adaptable. In the ground, mix some peat in with the soil to create a mixture that will drain well if there is prolonged wet weather. Now, the ground orchid has already been cultivated, it will be blooming in March. The ground orchid fetches at K1,000 per plant. When the plants are ordered from other townships, those are sold for K1,500 per plant, he added.
