This orchid is easy to grow. Water regularly and keep in filtered sunlight. Although they enjoy warmer weather, they can take 55 degrees F spikes in the evening. They grow best mounted however you can pot in an orchid bark mix. Rarely, it will produce very tiny leaves and shed them once flowering begins.
