This orchid is warm to hot growing, preferring a position in very bright filtered light to full sun. They need plenty of light to bloom, however if you see the foliage or flowers burning, then it may be too direct of a spot. Air circulation is important for orchids to dry properly and keep the foliage cool; this species enjoys a medium level of air circulation, as well as medium humidity. Pot in a well-draining chunky mix like orchid bark, perlite and charcoal. This species naturally grows in forests near the Atlantic coast. Protect from freezing temperatures.
