Since I really enjoy Web research, and I love to find out more about
different orchid types that I had never heard of before, couldn't resist
looking for this one. The simplified answer I got from a preliminary Web

the following statement that I think applies here "I've not had the guts to
try tolumnias or vandaceous orchids as yet, but I'll get there eventually. "

Which Rhynchostylis? We treat gigantea rather differently than we treat

Hi everyone! I just acquired a rhynchostylis and would like some tips


caring for it. I know it should stay moist, but what type of medium



prefer? Will it grow well in s/h? Any help would be appreciated.
