Default Capanemia uliginosa/superflua culture tips

Hi everyone,

Any culture recommendations for this small beauty? Mine is not too happy, I keep it in a terrarium, mounted with some sphagnum, under almost Cattleya-level light, daily watering (dries out slightly). Temp varies from 64-73F (18-23C) daily...

I've never grown it.

From reading the entry in the Internet Orchid Species Photo Encyclopedia, you may be giving far too much light. It is a full shade plant growing under the canopy of evergreen trees. Try it with Phalaenopsis level light.

Your days are probably cooler than it prefers, as well. When you read an orchid is cool to warm growing, that refers to night temperatures. Even in winter this part of Brasil has warm to hot day temperatures, easily 25-30 C / 77-85 F or more.
May the bridges I've burned light my way.

Weather forecast for my neighborhood
