    Default Rhyncostylis

    I am interested in getting a rhyncostylis and I am wondering how to grow them?

    I did a search but didn't find anything that mentions the best way to grow one.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hi
    I have had one for several months and it has been very happy in a basket with spagnum moss loosley packed(lots of air). Temps during that time have been in the 65-80 range and humidity between 55-65%. I don't water till the moss is dry/crispy.

    It came with no roots and now has large roots and a spike with lots of buds. In my very limited experience they are pretty easy.

    Really? Sounds like yours is doing really well. Easy sounds good to me! I haven't gotten mine yet, but if it's as easy as you make it sound, then I'm definately going to give it a try!

    Thank you for the info!
