We advise cultivating the The Telipogon in a covered place, in an apartment or green house, as they don't like temperatures below 15°C: during late Spring they can be moved outdoors. 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.Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can take in the solar rays 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.
Let's wet abundantly with about 1-2 glasses of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 1-2 weeks . 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.
