    A small vandaceous plant from Thailand and Vietnam. I grow it in intermediate conditions in moderately bright light.

    It has taken quite a few years to get this to grow up. I think it also likes to dry quickly at the roots. When I let the moss start to collect, the roots rot.

    I agree, sometimes it seems the plants need more moisture but actually this is not true .. this species needs to dry quickly, in my orchidarium the moss can't grow up :D in my opinion a good air motion is commendable
