Pleione × lagenaria is a Pleione hybrid that blooms in the fall. Plants were first described by Lindley in 1851 based on species collected by Thomas Lobb in Assam India.[1]

Plants are found in Yunnan, China and Assam India at elevations of 1500 to 2500 meters.[1]


Plant goes dormant in the late fall to early spring. Pot plants in a mix of bark and sphagnum moss, or in 50% peat and 50% perlite. Mix should retain moisture and should be well drained. Plants should be watered constantly during growing season. Stop watering when leaves drop. Plant should be misted lightly and potting media should be kept dried during dormancy in the fall. Keep plant cool from 64° to 75°F during growing season and cold during dormancy form 50° to 37°F. Plants should be kept warmer than other species in the genus. Grow in diffused light and fertilize at half strength during summer. Plants can be grown mounted on cork
