Serapias neglecta, the scarce tongue-orchid, is a species of orchid endemic to southern Europe.
If you’ve recognized any mistakes feel free to notify us about it. This would help us to provide only the best-quality information.
Serapias need special care especially when it comes to watering. Dormant tubers are very sensitive to moisture and tubers rot easily. Very young plants, when the new shoots first appear also die from over watering.
They do need more light than Soft-canes, well-drained soil with some organic matter and some slow release fertilizer.
