Ianclarkara Cheyenne Marie 'Green Gecko'
A unique Zygopetalum relative, this variety has finely spotted pale green blooms and a light purple lip. Attractive foliage and a good option for consistent waterers. Semi-terrestrial, but prefers good drainage.
Potting mix: Fine bark or sphagnum/perlite mix. Repot carefully in Spring every two years before fully pot bound.
Light: Bright indirect - medium light. Not picky about window direction if placed within 3 feet. Protect leaves from direct sun exposure.
Water: Water frequently in hot months when media is near dry. Somewhat forgiving with short drought periods but prefers not to stay dry.
Temp: Intermediate-cool (55F min night, 90F max day).
Humidity: 40-70%, tolerant of moderate humidity with adequate watering.
Fertilizing: 1/2-1/4 strength urea-free balanced fertilizer, every other watering as new roots and leaves emerge. Flush the pot once monthly to remove mineral build up. Decrease to once monthly or stop entirely in Winter.
