Dinema polybulbon

This is the easiest orchid I know of! I’ve not had good success in the past growing orchids but this one is really hard to kill.  It is equally well suited to life as a house plant as a terrarium plant and is tolerant of a wide variety of conditions.  If grown as a terrarium plant it likes to be mounted to tree-fern without much or any sphagnum.  If grown as a house plant, a well-drained pot of sphagnum works well if you allow the sphagnum to get crispy on the top between waterings.  Mine is growing in a west-facing window but it would likely do fine in a south or east-facing window as well.

 

Growing in open-air,
