- Light: Needs a light level of 35000-45000 lux. This plants require very bright light and strong air movement. The level of light is so high that the plants can tolerate without allowing leaves to burn. It is possible to grow this species on a sunny window sill, but flowering when growing in artificial light is almost impossible.

- Temperature:  The average temperature of the summer day is 26-28 ° C, the night 19-20 ° C, giving a daily difference of 7-9 ° C. In spring, the average temperature of the day is then 30-31 ° C, the night 12-19 ° C, and the daily difference is 11-18 ° C. In winter the average day temperature is 25-28 ° C, night 9-10 ° C, with a daily difference of 15-18°C.

- Humidity: Needs the humidity of almost 80-85% in the growing season, but in the winter and early spring it drops to 60-65%.

- Watering: It should be constantly moist during the growing season from spring to early autumn, but when the new growth reaches maturity at the end of autumn, the amount of water should be gradually reduced.

- Fertilizer: It is recommended to use a 1/2 dose of fertilizer for orchids every week. From spring to mid-summer, high-nitrogen fertilizer enriched with micronutrients should be used, and then until the end of autumn fertilizer enriched with phosphorus.
