This orchid prefers to dry in between waterings, and placed in bright indirect light. You want a well-draining chunky medium to use, like a mix of orchid bark, perlite and charcoal for example. This plant prefers humidity and requires some air circulation. The air circulation is important for proper drying and keeping the leaves cooled down. The plant will also do great mounted, it displays really well this way. If you choose to mount the plant, watering will be needed more frequently. Still allow the roots to dry out in between watering. Protect from freezing temperatures.
