    Default Sedirea japonica growing conditions

    I'd really like one of these, but am quite confused as I have read:
    • That it likes warm conditions
    • That it has to be on the cooler end of the intermediate spectum
    • That it needs higher light than phals
    • That it blooms better with less light than phals
    • That it has to dry out
    • That it can't dry out between waterings.


    Luckily, all DO seem to agree that it is an orchid. Sigh. Any advice?

    Oh, and, I have read people refer to a miniature form of it...is it not already a miniature?

    Great thread Kathi, I also got one just yesterday, has to be still shipped to me. It would be good to get started with advice from people already growing this one.
