This gorgeous plant was purchased 6 years ago, from Byrd's, a small
orchid nursery in Lakeland, FL. I carried it home on the plane on
my lap and have cared for it lovingly for 6 years.
This plant grows in a wooden hanging basket, with no planting material
or dirt. I water it about once a week by soaking in a bucket filled
with water. I add fertilizer occasionally. The air roots are awesome,
almost three feet long.
This summer, we were away from home on a month long vacation and
moved all the plants, including the orchids, outside, so they could
easily be watered with a hose while we were gone.
