  1. Do you feel this would do well outside of a green house environment, say in home growing with enough light? It is a real beauty, when I saw your picture I had an “awww, so cute” moment.

  2. I don’t honestly know, Rob. My experience with this species is limited to greenhouse cultivation. Its possible you could grow it on a semi-shady windowsill, as this is often sold as a very easy species to care for, but rainforest type Orchids generally do need good humidity to perform adequately.
