  1. Lighting: Place your Catasetum Orchidglade in a location with bright, filtered light. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hottest parts of the day, as it can scorch the delicate foliage.

  2. Watering: Keep the growing medium consistently moist during the active growing season, typically spring to early fall. Allow the top layer of the substrate to dry slightly between waterings to prevent overwatering, which can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, ideally between 50% to 70%, to mimic the orchid's natural tropical habitat. Consider using a humidifier or placing a tray filled with water and pebbles beneath the orchid pot to increase humidity levels.

  4. Fertilization: Feed your Catasetum Orchidglade regularly during the growing season with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength. Apply fertilizer every two weeks to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering.

  5. Temperature: Provide temperatures ranging from 65°F to 85°F (18°C to 29°C) during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night to simulate the orchid's natural temperature fluctuations. Avoid exposing the orchid to extreme temperature variations.

  6. Air Circulation: Ensure good air circulation around the orchid to prevent the development of fungal diseases and promote healthy growth. Use a small fan to gently circulate air around the plant, especially in humid environments.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Catasetum Orchidglade every one to two years or when the growing medium begins to break down. Use a well-draining orchid potting mix and choose a pot that allows for ample root growth. Repotting is best done after the orchid has finished flowering and entered its dormant period.
