Tolumnias

I've recently gone on a Tolumnia binge, 13 hybrids and 6 species. They have arrived mounted on pieces of wood, attached to slatted plack, in netted pots inside a larger pot(plastic), netted pot with plant stabilized with large Ochita chunks (3/4-1"), am growing in doors under LED full spectrum lights,humidifier, fans, temperature in the neighborhood of 75 degrees. What's best for them?

Lots of air movement and humidity but not a lot of moisture around the roots for too long. They seem to rot very quickly if not perfect although some people grow them easily.

I have killed many but your conditions sound about right...……

I look forward to seeing photos of flowers. I have never had success no matter how I try to grow them, I am not sure why really.

Well an update, collection of Tolumnias has grown to 17 hybrids and 8 species, still searching for a few more, than I'll find a few more I think I must have. The hybrids are all mountedin small net pot in a larger plastic pot, new roots, few starting to spike, can't take credit for this as they were initiated before I received the plants, all are putting on new growth and roots. I attribute Ray's magic elixirs for this astounding growth. The species which are mounted seem to be on a slower growth curve. The first of the hybrids shoul bloom later in the week.
