    Question Pelatantheria insectifera and Trichoglottis fasciata care

    I recently acquired both orchids. Both of them are cuttings. Pelatantheria insectifera is the second time. I hope it will survive this time. Trichoglottis fasciata is the first time. Any advice is very appreciated.

    You don't want Pelatantheria insectifera info from me. My one attempt with this one ended badly for the orchid.

    I have no clue on what to tell you, but I did find this; Dr. Giuseppe MAZZA Journalist - Scientific photographer > Pelatantheria insectifera not much info on the Trichoglottis fasciata only that it does like cool to warm temps. Good Luck!!

    I have one that blooms quite regularly, they can take a fair amount of sun and they are growing on a piece of wood. It is rather slow growing I must say. Cute little flowers

    I have a Trichoglottis fasciata (correctly Staurochilus fasciatus) and I grow along side Vandas and like full sun and grow like a vine. I got mine as a seedling and it has grown well and yet to bloom. Some of my friends here grow Pelatantheria insectifera and grow mostly like a vandaceous culture.

    WOW!! Yours look very healthy. I hope mine will grow as strong and healthy as yours. But is that an alba form? It looks white and the lip is not purple/pink.
