    We all know that these are one of the cloud plants which they thrive in highlands.

    In order for them to grow well, you need to hang them above 6 feet (If your elevation belongs to below the 50 meters above the sea level) in shady places, constant misting during mid-day and media should be well drained. Roots should be well ventilated, regularly air movement must done.

    I am so glad I didn't buy any of these recently, although I had a chance at a couple. I hate buying an orchid and watching it die a painful death. And with our hot weather...nothing even remotely like a cloud forest, it would have rotted. Phew...
