Cultivation Tips for Success: To cultivate Coelogyne mayeriana successfully, mimic its natural habitat by providing optimal light, temperature, humidity, and growing media conditions:

  1. Light: Aim for a light level of 30000-45000 lux, ensuring bright but filtered light, particularly during the afternoon hours. Consistent air movement is crucial for healthy growth.

  2. Temperature: Maintain average day temperatures of 31-33°C and night temperatures of 22-23°C, with a daily temperature difference of 9-11°C throughout the year.

  3. Humidity: Sustain high humidity levels of approximately 85%, increasing to 90% in winter and slightly decreasing to 80% during a brief period in summer.

  4. Substrate and Growing Media: Opt for loose, fast-draining substrates such as cork or tree fern rootstock, or consider shallow pots or baskets lined with sphagnum for enhanced moisture retention.

  5. Watering: Water generously during active growth periods, ensuring excellent drainage to prevent waterlogging. Avoid allowing the roots to become soggy or damp.

  6. Fertilization: Apply a weekly dose of 1/4-1/2 of the recommended orchid fertilizer during active growth to promote robust flowering and foliage development.

  7. Rest Period: While Coelogyne Mayeriana maintains its cultivation requirements year-round, slightly reduce watering in winter while ensuring the plant never dries out completely.
