Potting mix: Well-draining grainy cactus/succulent or well draining tropical mix. Repot in Spring every 1-2 years or when root bound. Prefers to be root bound to flower.
Light: Bright indirect-dappled direct light. South or West facing preferred.
Water: Water thoroughly when dry (1-2 inches of the soil is dry). Will tolerate drought.
Temp: Warm (60F min night, 85F max day). Keep above 50F.
Humidity: 30-70%. Not picky, but will appreciate higher humidity.
Fertilizing: Slow release fertilizer (Osmocote recommended) applied at the beginning of Spring. Alternatively, full strength soluble 20-20-20 fertilizer applied monthly during active growth. Decrease in Winter. Orchid fertilizer may entice flowering.
