P: ( Pleione )
Most species are growing on well drained rock surfaces in moss or epiphytic in semishade. As with other asian and eastern African species plants rhythm is following monsoon climate: Dry and cool winters,  more or less hot summers with much rain . So they need much water in summer and should be dry and cool in winter. Compost: very well drained mixes of pumice gravel, perlite and some bark for epiphytes and pine needles at surface. They like a good fertilization during vegetative period. Beginning of watering in spring should be done carefully. Also a mix of pineneedles and moss (Pleurozium schreberi, common in pine forests ) works well.

Pf: Pleione forestii,  maculata and x lagenaria are better growing  in living sphagnum moss.

Pt :terrestrial growing Pleione like grandiflora, limprichtii, bulbocodioides,
yunnanensis, scopulorum and their hybrids are also growing in limestone beds, couvered with moss.

Ps: scopulorum is best growing in mineral soils with limestone.
