Get an authentic tropical Hawaii feeling with the Bamboo Orchid. It delivers the classic orchid shape and colors, plus bright green year-round bamboo-like foliage. Blooms frequently in sequence all summer and fall. Commonly seen by visitors to the Kilauea Volcano, the Bamboo Orchid grows in large numbers in Lower Puna on Big Island in thin soils on top of lava flows.
It’s an easy to grow ground orchid: give it lots of light, warmth, a rich but very fast draining soil and plenty of humidity and light fertilizer. It does great outside on the East Coast and Southern States in Summer (hello tropics!). It grows as far north as Orlando outside when it gets Winter sun under the protection from trees or roofs but prefers to be above 55F.
It’s scientific name is Arundina graminifolia. Orchid lovers plant this orchid in groups or beds for effect. It’s also used in Chinese and Indian medicine.
