Small-sized, cool-growing species.
That is really striking! Great markings and vibrant yellow.
Lovely! You don't see these very often. Is it challenging?
Actually, not challenging at all. I keep it at 52F nights and 72F days, pretty bright light, constant moisture and 70-90% humidity. It blooms nonstop. I grow two other Huntleya species in the intermediate greenhouse and they never bloom for me.
I like the idea of easy to bloom.
So, you grow it cool? It's supposedly a warm grower. Good to know it will do well grown cool. WHat it is it potted in?
I never tried growing it warm since the seller told me they grow them cool in South America. it is in a basket filled with equal parts of NZ sphagnum moss, medium Orchiata bark, and perlite. It stays constantly moist, pretty much a Dracula culture.
