Grown very bright (almost full sun), warm side of intermediate. This is a favorite of mine.
I've never grown this and now I'm wondering why. How warm do you think it needs to be?
Marni, my whole greenhouse is "intermediate" but I keep this high up near the roof. The best answer I have for you is that I grow it on the warmer side of intermediate with lots of light. Sorry for the vagaries of my description.
love this plant where can I get one ?
Hi, Mickey. I don't remember where I got mine. These plants aren't uncommon so a Google search should turn up a few sources. Since you are a beginner with orchids are you necessarily wanting species? If you are that is great. If species vs. hybrid isn't important to you I would recommend an Ascocenda which is a cross between Ascocentrum and Vanda. They tend to stay small, though larger than the Ascocentrum parent, but flower much more freely
I'm not trying to talk you out of an Ascocentrum curvifolium because they are wonderful, but there are lots of options out there that are very showy, all sizes and colors.
Someone else may be able to let you know of a vendor that has A. curvifolium in stock.
BTW, most species and hybrids in this group like very bright light, lots of water and heat.
