    Default Holcoglossum flavescens culture

    I just bought this plant last week but I am not sure if I have to grow this under full sun or not. Anyone else have this plant? I appreciate it very much for any info you can share.

    Here is the plant

    Hi Tanya! Good to see you on-line. I do not have that plant, so no help, but it is very nice. Maybe Nelson will see it. He may actually grow it or something similar.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Hey Tanya, I don't have that plant, but I wish I did, it's lovely.

    Hi there Tanya, I do grow these little guys and culture is the same as Papilionanthe vandarum, or if you are unaware of that one, similar culture to Vanda coerulea. I keep them in intermediate -cool temperatures and give them shading of one layer 50% white and one layer 70% white shade cloth in an unheated glasshouse in summer watered heavily (as mine are mounted) and fertilised moderately, then, in winter it stays in an unheated g/house but shade cloth is slowly removed from the 70% layer in autumn to 50% in early winter and only then no shade cloth for the rest of winter until early spring.
    Less water in winter and hardly any fertiliser. Hope that helps.
    Cheers.

    No worries Tanya. I grow quite a few of the "Himalayan" vandoides and some odd ones they are, but I love them for their rarity and challenge. any other questions don't hesitate to drop me a line.
    Cheers
