Description

This is a hot to warm growing epiphyte that can be grown in containers. You want a potting soil that is chunky for excellent drainage that will hang onto some moisture. Allow the medium to lightly dry in between watering, keeping it slightly moist at all times. Give the plant a dry period in the cold months. Medium to high humidity is recommended for optimal growth and make sure there is adequate air circulation, this will help keep the plant from root rot. Fertilize when there is active growth only. Protect from freezing temperatures.
