Plant care

Scaphosepalum digitale needs a light place. Daily spraying with demineralised water is recommended. Additional fertilizing is not immediately necessary. Give this orchid an airy substrate or place the orchid on fern root or an epiphyte stem. Always put Sphagnum around the roots if the plant is not placed in a substrate to ensure sufficient moisture. Some experience with growing orchids is desirable.
