    Default Bletilla Striata Help!!!!'

    Hello, I recently obtained two bletilla striata bulbs. I can find no information about them on other websites. I was wondering if anyone has ever over-wintered them indoors? I recently bought two bulbs and they had bloomed before i bought them and the new growth was just poking out what I did was put them in dry peat moss and put then in the lower part of my fridge. Is this correct? Should I dampen the peat moss. What should I do!!! Haha, i can hardly find any information online about growing them indoors.

    Are you familiar with IOSPE?
    The website has great info on the orchids they cover. You do have to learn to read into the descriptions to learn its cultural needs. But is a great species website. For instance, I see they are cold to cool growing. Can you provide that range in Kentucky?

    If have seen this already, I apologize this is just repetitive for you.

    I have seen that website before but thank you for the reply I appreciate. I can find tons of info about growing them outside, but I wanted to grow them indoors for a couple of years before transplanting them outdoors. They are hardy to my zone in Kentucky.
