    I really like the Chiloschista group. I believe they're considered to be the "Ghost Orchids" of SE Asia and so much easier and hardy growing unlike Dendrophylax lindenii found in FLorida everglades.

    Hi lanhua

    You can check for Chiloschista species on internet. I saw alot of this species in the wild and I can tell you something ask you want to know. Most of them living in the very high attitude area and It leaving on the living tree under shadow (I thing it need not a lot of light)
    This is photo of this species in the wild.

    If they are in high altitude then that means they like the cool weather. Is the are misty and high humidity like as in lots of fog at dawn and nearing dusk?

    I wonder if this can grow in lowland area with warm temperature (but with high humidity provided for)?

    This species 100% under shadow, and as I see it need high attitude but not cool weather. Basically this species quite ease to grow.
    @ST168: Yes, I saw it bloom sometime in the wild.
