    Default Angcm. sesquipedale

    Hi Everybody
    I Just got an Angcm. sesquipedale and was wondering if anybody has any tips on growing this plant? It is currently planted in sphag. and seems to be very healthy. It has an excellent root system and even an old bloom spike.

    thanks

    Hi Aaron!

    We grow our sesquipedale in lava rock. It takes oncidium light levels, but could probably use more. We water and feed the same as the cattleyas.

    Cheers!

    brutal dreamer do you let them dry out between waterings? I have read that you are supposed to keep them evenly moist.

    We do let them dry out between waterings; however we have high humidity here in the GH.

    Cheers!
