    Default trichoglottis cultivation advice needed

    basically i am a catasetum fan, but lately i got a gift from a nursery owner, a trichoglottis, he said is a species and had been keeping the plant near to ten years but he forgot the name of the species, mentioned something like tiger stripe. he gave me a small cutting, so far roots are sprouting but i needed more info on its cultivation

    so far i planted it in a plastic pot with mix charcoal and broken bricks, water 2x per day

    so far from what i can dig from the net,
    vanda light cultivation, need support as it grows and water freely on the aerial roots and the medium let it dry slightly between watering .....anything that i miss out,

    here are the pics En. Zainal.
    currently under partial shade, as the roots established, will send it out for brighter light. currently two roots, one more coming up (hidden in the pot)
    and may your wish come true Bruce, i am too eagerly waiting for the bloom but this cutting is about 4 inches in length, i guess it will be quite some time before it started to bloom.
    thanks for the feed back guys.

    Hi Ian, I came across where Nursery owner did mentioned on Trichoglottis species 'Tiger Stripe'. The actual name is Trichoglottis fasciata and the leave is longer compare with other Trichoglottis species. In fact I have Trichoglottis smithii and brachiata. I attached it to drift wood and
    water twice per day, placed together with my Vanda.

    hi, thanks for the tips and also the possible ID, makes my cross match easier when it blooms (keeping my finger cross). never thought that you are in OTF as well. nice meeting you here.

    I actually suspect it was Trichoglottis fasciata but can't be sure until we see the blooms. It was quite common in Kedah and the blooms are very fragrant. I used to have them (collected them myself) and there used to be hosts of them on the rain trees in the Anak Bukit Istana grounds( Palace grounds of the Sultan of Kedah). I believe that it has been moved from the genus Trichoglottis to some other genus. Can't remember which - maybe some other member can give further info on this.

    I did suspect that it could be Trichoglottis fasciata which was quite common in Kedah. I used to have them (collected them myself) and there were hordes of them on the rain trees in the Istana (Palace) grounds of the Sultan of Kedah. The flowers are star shaped and beautifully barred and very fragrant.The spike, the flowers and plant habit resemble that of the Arachnis.

    I believe the plant has now been moved to the genus Staurochilus (see IOSPE).
