Cultivating Tips:

Light: Laelia anceps var. alba prefers bright, indirect light. It is best to place the plant near a south-facing window or under artificial grow lights. Avoid direct sunlight as it can scorch the leaves and flowers.

Temperature: This orchid species is native to the high-altitude regions of Mexico, and it requires cool to intermediate temperatures to thrive. During the daytime, the ideal temperature range is between 20-24°C, and at night, the temperature should not fall below 13°C.

Watering: Laelia anceps var. alba prefers to be kept evenly moist. It is recommended to water the plant thoroughly and allow excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, which can lead to root rot.

Humidity: This orchid requires high humidity levels between 50-70%. To maintain high humidity, mist the leaves regularly or place a tray of water near the plant.

Potting: Laelia anceps var. alba prefers a well-draining potting mix. A mix of orchid bark, perlite, and charcoal is an ideal choice. Repot the plant every two to three years or when the potting mix starts to break down.

Fertilizing: This orchid species benefits from regular fertilizing during the growing season, which is from spring to early fall. Use a balanced orchid fertilizer, diluted to half strength, every two to three weeks.
