I think it will be fine... Stenoglottis is pretty much terrestrial, so it does not need the drying-out that epiphytic orchids do. If it gets cooler, that's fine too. (Mine gets winter temperatures routinely down to 40 deg F/4 deg C, occasionally even a bit lower for a few hours.) My winter high temps are typically around 68-72 deg F (20-22 deg C) on a "warm" day, often somewhat cooler (but most of the time at least above 60 deg. F/15 deg C)

Would a mix with more added bark, perlite and pumice be better suited? As it is now the media is quite wet for 2-3 days atleast, before it becomes more of a damp consistency, albeit there's some small air pockets distributed evenly in the pot (thanks to the pumice, perlite and bark) I don't want the tuber to rot. But also it would be nice to water it more seldom and having the option to forget about it for a while and not needing to check on it every other day. It's growing indoor, so the relative humidity is low but not terrible.

Maybe in the future you can play with the mix. Don't disturb it now, wait for leaves to drop, do any potting as new growth emerges in few months.

Thanks for the reassuring words! As of now itīs under quite strong led growlights and the foliage has begun to deteriorate. Thereīs also new growth emerging from the base of the plant. Should I try to coax it into dormacy by taking it of the lights and putting it somewhere less bright and warm, like on a windowsill? I feel like Iīve made the plant confused as which season it is.

I never stop watering mine... the old growth goes dormant about the time that the new growth is starting .So there is never a real dormancy.

All right. So there shouldnīt be a problem that the conditions are pretty much the same (regarding light levels) year round?

I don't know the effect of light levels or temperature variation, since mine are outside and they get the seasonal temperature and light variations, not something that I control. Of course yours are indoors for at least half of the year. But if new growth is starting, that's excellent, it certainly needs water and light.

I realize this is an old post, and I am late to the party. I just pulled mine off of a lower shelf in front of an east window. I can't say that I was the best waterer, and it has been the victim of benign neglect. It has at least three bloom stalks coming up. It's potted in spagnum in a clay pot and more often than not run drier than it should be. So if I were you, I would relax, and just enjoy something that's easy to care for.

Dolly I donīt know if your reply was for Neophyte or me, but it struck a chord. I originally bought the plant because Iīve read it was pretty undemanding and its overall looks are somewhat remiscent of the native Dactylorhiza.

Iīve now starting to see some thick roots growing in the pot, and I also have some fat seed pods on the way (I will try ex-vitro sowing).

Thank you.
