They grow in partial-shade with moisture and well-drained soil. In temperate climates, they need to be grown in greenhouses. Can be grown in pots but also on slabs of bark. Weak foliar feeds can be added to the sprays.
Can be propagated from older leafless pseudobulbs which can be removed for replanting, or from new growth which may appear from the bottom of the plant.
