This orchid, as with most vandaceous types, is best grown mounted or in a slatted basket. No planting medium is needed, although you could use a small amount of coarse bark or sphagnum moss in the basket if you wish. Aerides may also be suitable for vase culture (for an explanation please see the entry in the Glossary) if grown in the home.
Watering should continue throughout the year, but with a reduction in fertilizer over the winter while the plant is not actively growing. Once the roots begin to grow fertilizer can be given and continued through the growing season, with plain being given every third or fourth watering.
