These orchids grow naturally in warm, moist, shaded tropical areas. Hobbyists wanting to grow them will need a warm, humid growing environment with gentle air movement. Their unusually fragrant blooms often appear in the slightly cooler Winter months.
Despite being in the Vanda Tribe, they are very different than Vandas. They grow more slowly, their roots are more fragile, and almost any direct sun will harm them. However, they are typically grown with no potting mix on slat baskets or mounted just like Vandas.
