    Beautiful. I have this plant but struggling to get any growth. What is the secret to getting it to grow well and flower. Specifically media / watering / light / winter rest etc ?
    Many thanks

    Sean, it is not an easy one to get estabilshed. A newly imported bare-root plant may need a couple of seasons

    to settle in your growing condition.

    Temperature: 55F-85F with some seasonal changes(cooler in winter)
    Media: potted in coconut husk chips mix but medium size bark mix should be okay.
    watering: keep it moist year round, no winter rest
    Light: bright shade, 2000-2200FC, slightly less than Cattleya light.
    Air movement: good air movement
