These plants don't like cold temperatures, therefore in the spring it is best to place them outside only when temperatures are above 15°C. Let's locate the plants so that they can enjoy a good diffused brightness, but someplace where they are not directly hit by solar rays.We suggest locating this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight during the coolest hours of the day.
The Telipogon has a shrub- like development. The Telipogon Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a yellowgreensandwhite colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. These plants have a pendolous deportment.
We suggest fertilizing periodically, every 20-25 days, using a specific fertilizer for orchids, to add to the irrigating water. Let’s avoid using fertilizers during the flowering period and leaving the fertilizer in direct contact with the roots.
The Telipogon needs to be watered quite frequently, every 1-2 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 1-2 glasses of water . Watering by immersion is suggested for orchids: it consists in soaking the containers in water up to the edge, when the soil is moist let's take out the vases and let the excess water drain before putting them back in place.
An insecticide treatment should be applied only if damaging insects have been seen on the plant; vaporizing the product we avoid spraying it on the flowers.
These orchids prefer slightly humid soils.
