Cool Zygos will flower during the cooler months of the year. Flowering period can be lengthened by shortening daylight hours to 10 hours.
Cool Zygos are best used as an indoor plant, however, they will survive in full shade outdoors. Ensure soil has plenty of grit and good drainage in a snug-fitting pot.
Keep soil moist while flowers are being produced. Be very careful not to over-water as this may lead to the roots and stems rotting.
Fertilise during growing seasons (summer & spring) with a diluted liquid fertiliser - consult your local plant specialist for the best option in your area.
Plant can be lightly trimmed back by pinching sections of the foliage. Do so after flowering.
