    Default Dimeranda stenoperala care

    All I know about plant is that it does not need high levels of light (I guess ). Need info on potting and media type as well as watering needs. Can any one help? Can't seem to find much information.

    Thank You

    Dimerandra stenopetala... The short answer on this species is to give it general Cattleya conditions - intermediate light and temperature. Probably a bit more particular about moisture level than Catts though, so a well drained mix kept more evenly moist. A medium fir bark mix intended for Phals would probably be good. I remember it as being susceptible to spider mites in low humidity, but not difficult overall.

    kirk is very right...it is found on trees usually with moss and rotten leaves around its roots...doesnt mind high humidity and moisture at all...i think its the most common and widespread species in my country...found on almost every large tree..even in yards....the flowers seem to be autogamous..forming seed pods very readily
