    Default Stelis morganii culture

    Having trouble finding info this little one. Any recommendations or experience especially on potting? The little bit of culture I've gathered is I/w, shade and moist. It looks like a climber. I haven't found anything on potting and very few pictures online that show a couple mounted and some newly purchased ones in sphag which is what mine is in.

    I haven't grown that particular species but this is a cloud forest species so I/C, shade to med bright, and moist. As for the medium it depends on your cultural conditions. I have grown them mounted but then they need daily care. I have grown them in loose Sphag but repot yearly. I have used bark mix as well with coir added. They like high humidity.

    Thanks Ron. I'd love to try it mounted but don't think it would thrive for me. I'll try some fresh loose sphag.
