    I have no orchids in cultivate, I just take pictures in nature.

    in winter they are in dormancy without leaves , here in my country in summer 15c ;30c in winter -5c;15c some time more inferior to -5c.

    and other info they are from calcareous substrat.

    here in europe and in france these species are protected ( often red list )

    also it is more agreeable to see them 'in situ' sometimes with great spot to thirty -fifty and more.

    they live in symbiosis with a fungus , it is also a difficult y

    2 others for the road

    ophrys aranifera



    orchis simia

    Wow, I've never seen O.simia. Amazing. I hope that more growers start working with more temperate orchids in the future.
