These epiphytes are found in nature growing high in trees in order to gather adequate light. They receive the nutrients they need from the air and water. In a cultivated setting they do best when watered every few days in the heat of summer and about once a week or so in winter. They do best in bright but not direct sunlight and benefit from good air circulation and a temperature that does not go below 35 degrees F.
