This conditions are guilty for central europe

B: ( Bletilla )
All species maybe hardy if covered in winter. They like full sun to semishade in growing season. Compost: mixes with good aeration such as pumice gravels with some bark and 5% clay gravel. They donít like much water in winter. A easy genus in cultivation

Ca: ( Caladenia )
A very complicate genus in cultivation and only people with longer experiences with ground orchids should try to work with these plants.Compost: Mixes with acid sandstone and some styromull and cocos fibres. Dry in rest period, full sun (artificial illumination in wintertime) during growing periode.

Ea: ( ground orchids from mountain eastern Africa as Bonatea and some Disas)
Climate at habitat is: cold and dry winters, hot and very rainy summers. Plants need strict cool and dry rest period. Habitats are sunny seasonal more or less moist and acid meadows.Compost: acid red sandstone mixes with very well drainage or mixes with 1 part pumice gravel, O,5 part perlite, 0,1 part peat, 0,1 part cocosnut fibres.

J: ( Japanese and asian woodland orchids )
General rules as Ck ( see Cypripediums) but winters are much more drier than in Europe and you have to protect  plants for to much rain to prevent rot. Plants hold green leaves in winter and build new green lead in spring. Compost: 3 parts pumice gravel, 0,5 parts gritty clay, 1 part cocos fibres. Semishade and good aeration is important. As other woodland plants they need slightly moist conditions.  

O:
( Orchis, Ophrys, Barlia, Serapias )

Plants are growing in dry calcareous meadows and need much sun. During vegetative period they like slightly moist    conditions but with exellent drainage. In rest period they need dry condition to prevent rot. Compost : 3 parts pumice gravel, 0,5 parts gritty clay.

 

4pl.= tetraploid plants, often greater flowers . If known motherplant of hybrids at first in name .
