This sweet, elegant orchid would be happy to put on a show in any home or garden.

Brassavola cucullata, although similar, is different than the orchid David Sander. This orchid needs as much bright indirect light as possible, and can take some direct morning sun but not a lot! Mount on cork with sphagnum or pot in orchid bark and perlite. When the medium has fully dried out, they are ready for more water, and water them thoroughly. They will take more water in the warmer months than the cooler months. If it sits in a highly humid spot, provide air circulation. Do not fertilize in Winter.
