To achieve airy, well-draining soil, incorporate sand or gravel. Mix orchid bark, coco coir, peat moss, or perlite into a quality potting mix. Adding compost is also beneficial as these plants thrive in soil rich in organic material.
Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry, maintaining a generally moist soil condition without waterlogging the roots, which can lead to root rot. During winter, reduce the watering frequency.
Being native to the lower rainforest regions, the plant thrives in bright, indirect light, similar to the filtered sunlight it receives in its natural habitat.
