    Default Cleisostoma paniculatum information

    I just purchased a Cleisostoma paniculatum at a local show today and so far have not been able to find much information of the requirements of this species. How much sunlight does it like is my biggest question as I am not sure where to put it in my outdoor year round south Florida environment. Anyone who has an answer would be appreciated! Thanks!!

    IOSPE says "hot to warm growing epiphyte" and it looks like medium light. More than phal and paphs less than most Dens.

    Thanks Harvey. I had seen that before I ordered this orchid, I am hoping some from the area in Asia where they come from will have more information cause there is not a lot out there on this species.

    I saw from the photo actually is a very nice , I dont have this species in my collection as it's from Indochina, generally speaking they love the high light in order to stimulate in spikes formation as other species of Cleisostoma's , all the best Jack.

    Don't have this species yet, concur with Dr.Zainal. higher light and normal watering and fertilizing all around the year with very high humidity
