    Default Scaphosepalum microdactylum culture

    Hi all! I just received one of these little guys as a bonus in a shipment and can't seem to find any cultural info. I would assume that it's general pleurothallid culture. If anyone has this plant, I'd appreciate input! Thanks in advance!

    Cool! Wish I could be of more help with regards to culture but I have never grown this one. As I recall they are cool to intermediate growers, don't like to dry out competely -- so stay lightly moist -- and can grow in phal conditions. So yes, basically typical pleuro culture.

    Good luck! I can't wait to see its blooms!

    Thanks for the reply Pavel...the plant actually came to me in bloom. I counted eleven spikes all together. There are probably more in it that are just starting. I will try my best to get a photo of it when I get home.
