    One of the easiest Stanhopea to bloom in lowland with snow white, basically
    - use big basket with huge hole for the spikes to grow,
    - use coconut chips as a medium and small amount of sphagnum moss to cover at the base of pbulb
    - require 40 to 50% of light level with the temperature range of 24 at night and daytime 34 degree C.
    - inorganic fertilizer once a week occ organic, spraying water twice a day depending your atmosphere.
    -mature pbullb may generate at least 2 to 5 spikes at one season.
    Hope it will give you some idea.
