    Default Maxilliaria arachnites - Culture?

    I need to know if anyone can help out with some information on the correct culture requirements of this Maxilliaria arachnites? I have this plant in a basket that is first lined with coconut fibre(coir), then a thin layer of Sphagnum moss on the bottom and all four sides and the basket has a fine bark mix 1/8"-3/8". I have been using R/O water. Lower amount of light with temp. range of 80 F / 62 F with the humidity ranging 40%-90% . It is getting plenty of air movement. I can not find any culture information online for this species. It has not done anything since I was given this little guy. Some of the tips have turn brown? Thank You for Your Help, Rich

    Rich you are growing it fine. Give it a chance...It should give some new growth in the spring and this species blooms off of new growth as it developes.

    It’s really a great setup and you’re growing it fine.

    Have you tried any nutrients or fertilizer in your growing process of orchid?
