Amesiella monticola

This is a cool to warm growing species from the Philippines, growing at the edges of forests. It has a monopodial habit, with linear leathery leaves. It blooms in late winter and typically has up to 5 blossoms, nocturnally fragrant. I am growing this moist (at 90+ percent humidity) and fertilize/water daily with a solution of 125ppm nitrogen fertilizer in RO water. It is being grown at between 1000 and 1500 foot-candles florescent light for 12 hours winter and 15 hours summer.
