Plant care

Condylago rodrigoi flourishes in warm environments around 25⁰C. Don´t let the temperature drop below 15⁰C or rise above 30⁰C. A humidity around 80% is preferred by Condylago rodrigoi. Keep it in a light spot, avoiding direct sunlight. For the best results, water the plant using rainwater or distilled water whenever the substrate dries slightly. In practice this will be watering three to five times a week. A proper airflow will help prevent infections and disease. Orchid-mix will be a suitable substrate. You can find this and other components in our ‘Plant Accessories’ section. Make sure moisture is able to drain from it. If your orchid gets too big, feel free to prune it.
