    Default Anguloa dubia

    This was a weak moment during ...picked up a young, Anguloa dubia and can't seem to find much information about them. Have read they're deciduous, like filtered light, to be kept evenly moist....

    Potting medium sugestion? Bark mix ok? Any idea which group they belong to???

    MT, this is from Jay's Orchid Encyclopedia, an excellent reference for species orchids of all types:

    SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Maxillarieae, SUBTRIBE Lycastinae.
    This small genus of ten terrestrial or sometimes epiphytic species is found in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru and has large, fleshy psuedobulbs that have large, plicate, imbricate, deciduous leaves. The single flowered inflorescence arises from the base of the new psuedobulb as a new growth begins. The flower is large, showy, fleshy and cup shaped with a 3 lobed lip and 4 pollina that moves within the sepals and petals. These species need a cool warm to cold environment with some shade, high humidity and lots of fertilizer while growing. They need a 2 to 3 week dry rest in the late winter. Resume water and fertilizer after simultaneous initiation of the new growth and the new inflorescence.

    Hope that helps! If you PM me, I can give you an e-mail of a fellow who's expert in South American species. He might help you more with culture tips.
