This is a vandaceous orchid that likes to be grown in warm, bright conditions, with high humidity and good air circulation throughout the year. It does not need a rest period and should be given ample water year round, with no fertilizer over the winter months. Watering with plain water (no fertilizer) at least every third or fourth watering while the plant is in active growth is recommended for all orchids.
Vandaceous orchids can be grown in a pot of very free draining material but produce aerial roots which rot if they are kept wet. It is better to grow them mounted on bark, tree-fern or similar, or in an open, slatted basket. They may also be grown in vases (please see Vase Culture in the Glossary). In hot climates or in hot weather, you may need to spray the roots several times a day, but they should not be wet when the air cools in the evening.
However you grow your vandaceous plants, be careful not to allow water to stand in the leaf joints as the leaves can easily rot off. Good air movement in mounted culture and careful watering/spraying in vase culture will help to prevent problems.
