*Cultural and care information based on average Vanda/Phalaenopsis care, use it as guide and should be adapted to suit your environment, especially with light requirement between Vanda and Phal levels.
🌡 Temp: Inter-warm to warm (☀️23-28°C/🌑18-22°C)
💧 Water: Wet/Dry cycle Water when dry, requires full dryout
💡 Light: Bright indirect to Medium direct, SouthEast exposure. Suggest to avoid the brightest 2 hours of the day in summer, maximize direct light in winter or add supplementary light. Give sufficient light until anthocyanin appears on leaf, purple pigmentation, indicating it's getting enough light.
🌰 Media: Sphagnum moss & Perlite mix or chunky :Phal mix. Ensure it can dry out fully within 5-7 days or less. Faster 100% wet to 100% dry cycle is best. Grow like a Vanda.
🧪: Fertilize: When it's actively growing in vegetative stage - typically when a top leaf emerges and growing. We recommend MSU & Marphyll rotation in low dosage every other watering and allow water flushing in between.
