    If it can be useful; I can tell you that this is easy to grow, but it needs a lot of light (as catteya), thinner irrigation (when it is very hot even two / day), high relative humidity, 70/80, 1/3 fertilizer -

    Thank you Elio. That's about what I'm doing. I got two varieties 3 years ago. 1 died the 1st year and the other is not looking good. The 1st year I had it in a small pot with good light a few feet from a fan in a sunny window. It put out 1 fan but that died a few months later. The next year I I mounted it on cork, same thing happened. This past winter I tied it to the stem of a Vanda and again its done the same thing. Grows well for a few months then dies off. The Vanda is outside, gets lots of sun in the morning and evening and watered 1-2 times a day depending on the heat. I know Harvey (78terp) does well with them. Maybe mine is just a weak plant.

    This essence greenhouse grow it out I see it very difficult, with a fog system things change, it's easier to control the ur, not less than 70%, its growth is very fast and requires the division to contain it; the blooms are always contained.

    I was hoping to build a green house this year but fortunes change. Life is like a box of chocolates.
