    Default Restrepia

    I have the opportunity to purchase a Restrepia, I have tried to do some reading on these, I was wondering if anyone here was familiar with growing them, if you wouldn't mind giving me some info from personal experience with them, such as ease of growth, light requirements, temp tolerances and such.

    Большое спасибо
    (Thank you very much)

    I have restrepia elegans x dodsonii. It's mounted on cork bark and is in an East window, getting a little blast of morning sun. I water it every other day and it's been blooming since I bought it in April. Really cool little bronze/rust flowers.
