Place in a position with bright indirect sunlight and direct morning sun, adequate air circulation and some humidity. This plant needs plenty of light to bloom each year. Water often, allowing the medium to dry in between watering. Can be mounted or potted. When potting, you want a well-draining, chunky mix like orchid bark, perlite and charcoal. Give it a dry Winter rest to prepare for the Spring ahead. The name fidelensis refers to the place in which it was first discovered- the Sao Fidelis mountains in Brazil.
