    Default Liparis grossa culture?

    I'm having some trouble finding information on Liparis grossa. All I could find was that it likes I-W temps and light to medium lighting. Does anybody know what the watering or media should be? Even humidity requirements?

    These plants mainly enjoy growing in cool conditions. You can prefer a medium like small bark, perlite and sand. You should keep the medium moist, but not wet.

    In the past I purchased a Liparis grossa orchid . It now has grown many small sections of new plants. I need help on how to separate and repot this orchid. Thanks.
