    Thanks everyone for the comments. Aerides maculosum is a native Indian orchid from the western ghats. It is a warm to hot growing plant. I am watering it the year round with no winter rest and they are growing nicely (naturally we have a rainy season of 4 months called the monsoon followed by 4 months of mild winter 10-20 oC and then 4 very hot months 30-40 oC. They are planted in baskets or pots with a lot of drainage holes. I have some that are mounted and they also look good. I use coconut husk and charcoal as the media and fertilize with cowdung.

    Regards Amey
