Auction – Psychopsis sanderae – NE-133 – Seed Grown – Native Exotics
This is a larger growing epiphytic orchid, it is native to Peru and is a warm to cool grower. This plant prefers bright light but not direct sun. This species does not like salts to build up around root system.
This specimen is a well hardened-off seed-grown plant from our lab here at Native Exotics. It’s small, about 2-3″ across. It’s still young, so some of the adult characteristics aren’t visible yet.
This plant prefers intermediate conditions, which means that it should be kept around 75-85°F during the day and 55-65°F at night with a very high relative humidity, allow to dry out some between watering.
Orchids as a genus, in most cases prefer high humidity, at least 55% RH for most species. In addition, they should be watered with distilled water, rainwater or reverse osmosis water rather than tap or well water. Fertilizing Orchids should only be done every two weeks using a fertilizer specifically for Orchids.
