  2. Temperature: Maintain a cool to warm temperature range for your plant. These orchids are adaptable, making them suitable for various climate conditions.

  5. Potting Medium: Use a well-draining orchid mix to ensure that excess water does not accumulate around the roots. Repot your plant when necessary, typically every couple of years, to refresh the potting medium.

Bloom Season: Cyrtorchis chailluana graces your living space with its enchanting blooms in the spring and summer months. Prepare to be mesmerized by the sweet fragrance and the beauty of its white flowers, which gradually transition to a charming apricot color.
