Cultivating tips:

Light: Provide bright, indirect light to encourage healthy growth and blooming. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can cause leaf burn.

Temperature: Maintain a warm to intermediate temperature range of 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the day, with a slight temperature drop at night.

Humidity: Orchids thrive in high humidity. Aim for humidity levels between 50-70% by using a humidifier or placing the plant on a tray with water and pebbles.

Watering: Water the plant thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Allow excess water to drain away to prevent waterlogged roots.

Fertilization: Feed with a balanced orchid fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season, and reduce frequency during the dormant period.
Potting: Repot every two to three years using a well-draining orchid mix. Provide adequate ventilation around the roots to prevent rot.

Rest period: After blooming, Rhyncholaelia digbyana x sib may enter a rest period. Reduce watering and allow the plant to experience cooler temperatures for a few weeks.
