Cultivation Tips:

  1. Light Requirements:

    • Grammatophyllum wallisii thrives in full sun. Ensure the plant receives plenty of direct sunlight for optimal growth and blooming.
  2. Temperature:

    • This species prefers warm conditions and can tolerate temperatures up to 100°F, provided the environment is humid. It can also withstand cooler temperatures down to 45°F. Ideal growing conditions are intermediate to warm temperatures.
  3. Humidity:

    • Maintain a humid environment to mimic its natural habitat. Regular misting or placing a humidity tray nearby can help achieve this.
  4. Placement:

    • In warmer regions, Grammatophyllum wallisii can be hung under a tree or placed in semi-shaded areas of the garden. This setup allows the plant to benefit from filtered sunlight and natural humidity.
  5. Watering:

    • Water regularly to keep the medium consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering slightly during cooler months.
  6. Feeding:

    • Fertilize monthly with a balanced orchid fertilizer. During the growing season, you may increase feeding to bi-monthly to support vigorous growth and prolific blooming.
  7. Root Care:

    • As the plant matures, it will develop a basket of aerial roots designed to catch falling leaves, which decompose and provide essential nutrients. Ensure these roots are not disturbed and allow the natural process to sustain the plant.
  8. Growth and Repotting:

    • Grammatophyllum wallisii is a vigorous grower and can double in size within a year. Repotting may be necessary every couple of years to provide fresh medium and more space for its expanding root system.
