Beautiful!!! One of my favorites, and I've wanted one for a long long time. However, convincing my partner that I NEED a terrarium is a losing battle.

Completely orchid obsessed and loving every minute of it....

I use leds 6500 about two feet above also have another probable about 3000 that I turn on a few hours a day. Its a bit closer, I use it because there are several other orchids around on the table the terr. Is on.
I keep my temps higher in the daytime and lower at night. 85/ 66. It is under phal level light, but in a tent with a brighter light about 3ft away. I have never measuted the lights' temps so I can't say how that compares.

Thanks, Camille. If you keep phals, you should have no problem with schoenorchis. Just mount it, put it with your phals, and water it everyday.

You donít need to grow Schoenorchis fragrans in a terrarium. They rot very easily and it's important it dries out before you water it again.

I have had mine under lights in my basement for ten years and I never had any problems with it.

Arne, sad to say you were very right. I lost that first one, but Iím not going to give up. I like that plant too much. I watered it to death, just shoot me.😳
