Abyssinian Gladiolus syn Acidanthera (Acidanthera murieliae (Peacock orchid))

A tender gladiolus from corms, grown in a pot, put outside summer. I have not been able to overwinter it outside. It is under the carport with my Cymbidium wall pots behind.

I let the pot dry out completely after flowering, put them in the conservatory and start to water again in spring. Oh, and repot them, in fresh soil.
