💡 Light: Medium direct / Bright indirect. Avoid extended exposure to direct sunlight, particularly in the summer afternoon. During vegetative cycle can provide 10-12 hours of photoperiod.
🌰 Media: Growers choice. Smaller size bark mix or Sphagnum moss with a well draining pot, as long as grower can provide proper watering practices. Can be mounted as well.
🧪: Fertilize: Only during active growth following the same as watering cycle. Reduce during arid season.
