  *Cultural and care information based on average Laeliinae care, use it as guide and should be adapted to suit your environment

🌡 Temp: Intermediate to Hot - flex range, follow seasonal temp
💧 Water: Full saturation to full dry ~7-10 days cycle. Complete dry between growths. Can keep moist during vegetative stage.
☁️Humidity: 30-40%+min, drought tolerant
💡 Light: Bright, Medium direct 12-14 hours (SouthEast/West Light, avoid strongest hour of the day during summer. Winter allow maximum any direct light exposure)
🌰 Media: Sphagnum Moss and/or Fine bark mix combination.  Best time to repot is when there is sign of a new growth. The plant should be positioned in the pot so that the newest growth is farthest away from the edge of the pot, allowing the maximum number of new growths before crowding the pot. Keep humidity high and fast wet to dry cycles in the medium until new roots form.

🧪: Fertilize: When it's actively growing in vegetative stage - typically when a new growth or bulb emerges and is growing. Increase as the bulb gets more mature to maximize growth potential in the bulb to get highest chance of inflorescence (flowering).  We recommend MSU & Marphyll rotation in low dosage every other or 3 watering and allow water flushing in between.
