    don't let it dry out fully like a cattleya, aim for even moisture (kind of like a phal).

    when it comes to light though, these want pretty high light. I have a brassia edvah loo alongside some standard catts at an unshaded south exposure. it's behind the catts but the leaves are dark green and I wish I had the room to move it closer to the windows.

    Thanks for that, I've been having problems with my Brsdm.'s & maybe it's because they're in clay pots with no side air vents? Too moist? They're in bark, charcoal & perlite mix. They're also outside under a shade cloth & watered at most 3 times a week.....
