    Does anyone out there grow Habenaria carnea successfully, who could provide some culture tips? I purchased two lovely speckly-leaved tuberous plants at the Santa Barbara Orchid Show last weekend, and would like to keep them happy. I’ve read they grow on moss-covered limestone, that they need a strict dry rest, and should have a very porous mix, but not clear about temperature range, light, etc. I’d be grateful for any insights.
    Thank you,
    Cindy

    I don't grow this, but does anyone have any elevation or habitat information?
