Cultivation Tips:

Light: Provide filtered and dispersed light, avoiding direct exposure to the sun in the afternoon. Aim for a light level of 25000-35000 lux. Ensure strong air movement at all times.

Temperature: Maintain moderate temperatures, with summer daytime temperatures around 25-26°C and nighttime temperatures around 14-15°C. In winter, daytime temperatures should be around 21°C and nighttime temperatures around 9-10°C.

Humidity: Keep humidity levels around 70-75% for most of the year, reducing to around 50% in late winter and early spring.

Substrate and Growing Media: Grow in rootstocks, hanging baskets, or attached to tree ferns. Use wire baskets with large mesh moss covered with sphagnum moss. Ensure the substrate remains moist but not wet to allow roots to dry quickly after watering.

Watering: Water abundantly during active growth, ensuring roots dry quickly afterward. Reduce watering when new growths mature in autumn, and flowering has finished. Fertilize weekly with 1/4-1/2 of the recommended dose of orchid fertilizer during active growth.

Rest Period: Limit watering in winter, but prevent the plant from drying out completely. Provide occasional fogging between infrequent watering to maintain moisture. Reduce or eliminate fertilization until new growth appears in spring, and more abundant watering resumes.
