    I found a picture on Instagram of a woman in my country having an Arachnis flos-aeris and she said that this orchid practically grows like a weed in the town she lives. Perhaps the cutting I have is an Arachnis flos-aeris, but I'm only speculating. I guess I'll just have to wait until either of both plants (my cutting or the parent plant) blooms. Either way, from what I read both types (Renanthera or Arachnis) needs a lot of sunlight which is not a problem in my country and high levels of humidity. Now that it's actively growing I'll concentrate in providing fertilizer and water.

    Two things needed: light and patience.

    Hi! We can finally know which type of orchid it is!! From the mother plant (at my grandmother's house) in the place of the stem where I took the cutting, a new growth developed and it finally produced blooms! This will be the first time I see this plant with blooms at my grandmother's house. (sorry for the pictures quaity)

    So, it's definitely a Renanthera. I will cut the crown of the cutting I have, I don't know if that will work, but at least it did with the mother plant.
