The flowers emerge from a creeping inflorescence. This orchid does well mounted with some sphagnum wrapped around the roots, or potted with a soil mix of orchid bark, perlite and charcoal. They enjoy a place where there is bright filtered light, air circulation and humidity. Blooming season is in the Spring and Summer and they should be watered well during this season, however allow the medium to dry in between watering. When there is active growth is the best time to fertilize. Water them very little in the Winter.
