    Default Got my first Haraella odorata, need advice.

    Hi,

    Im new to the hobby and to the board. I just aquired the cutest little Haraella odorata. I am very happy.

    Anyway, I put it in a vivarium hanging from a suction cup, the stick came with a hanger, so I hung to a suction cup.
    Its under 1 40watt 3 foot strip light in 80% + humidity and at around 70-77 degrees farenheit. It gets light from 9 am to 6 pm.
    Are these good conditions for this plant? Its not in bloom, what can I do to help it along?

    Thanks.

    Hi , Right now it is in the green house , prior it was in the house , no special treatment , in the house it was in bloom all the time but stopped when I moved it , I think it is because it is cooler in the green house . I am going to bring it back into the house until the weather warms up . Thanks for looking . Gin

    Hi Tindo,

    I don't know this species at all, but that definitely looks like pigment and not rot to me!

    You should be fine. Please post photos when the colorful baby blooms!

    Thanks everyone! I guess you can all tell this is my first "baby". I fell in love with this little orchid the moment I took it out of the box.

    Hi Gin,
    Do you still have this guy? Has it grown a lot since this post? I have one and it recently put out 2 spikes that were just getting longer all the time, but now finally I see a bud on one. I wondered if I needed to hike up light levels to make the bud differentiate- what the plant was needing to starting blooming already. While I was researching this, I saw your beautiful plant and this post. Do you still have it on a bird suet feeder stuffed w sphag? That seems like a v creative idea and I was wondering how I might adopt it...
    Also wondered how big this plant could get after a few years in home cultivation.
