Hi Paul, I have grown this Pelantanthera insectifera for a few years in my warm tank. It receives the highest light in tank (2 fluorescent tubes, one blue and one red). It likes bright light in tank (2-3 inches below tubes), mounted and spray daily (dry by night), 80% humidity, and is fed every 2nd watering with fish emulsion and kelp. It flowers in spring. Key here is bright light and high humidity... Hope this helps

Neat plant - never heard of it!
Mods - can we get this moved to the appropriate sub-forum (Vanda alliance - others)? This is in the aeridinae subtribe, not aerangidinae/angraecinae. Thanks!

Found some pics of the blooms from this summer ...



The flowers look more saturated in pink due to the red spectrum fluorescent... Flowers lasts about 10-14 days...

For what it's worth, I bought this on a cork mount fall 2014. The roots are all around and through the cork. I put it in my humid sunroom where it gets no direct sun but bright shade. I spray it with rainwater/dilute fertilizer twice daily, morning and night. Each growth has made a new leaf and is starting another. I think it needs bright shade, warm temperatures and lots of humidity. It isn't a fast grower for me.

Hi, a belated inquiry on this one how does it cope with the cooler temperatures when winter comes around. Does it need to be kept at a specific minimum to avoid leaf loss?
