the shelob is easy to grow. not too fussy. grows like an oncidium. bright light, like in a south facing window (but not in direct sun). i have mine in a south facing window, and it gets very bright light. i have thin material for drapes, and the center panel is actually shadecloth, so the plants get some sun, but not direct sun in winter, in the summer no direct sun, just very bright light. likes fine bark mixes, and i water twice a week in warm weather. regular household temperatures, no heat or ac running. takes 45ish to the 90's pretty well so far. putting out spikes 4 and 5 for this year now. check out how folks grow oncidiums in your area as treatment can vary by climate, and basically follow suit. they are pretty forgiving plants. they can get bushy in a few years.
