Would it be safe to compare these to rupicolous Laelias more than to Eulophia petersii?

I'm wondering if it would enjoy southern California conditions.

SoCal climate should be good for this one. I'd say it likes more water than either rupi Laelias or E. petersii.

First, Welcome!

I lost one of these awhile back... before I got an RO system. I'd love to try again if I can find one that doesn't break the bank. It think they're somewhat picky about water quiality (unlike either E. perersii or the rup Laelias which don't seem to care)
