This is relatively an easy to grow species. They do well when mounted on a slab or can be grown in pots also with lots of water. Watering must be abundant and frequent. They need bright but indirect light.

Though the plant does not have a distinct resting period, reducing the water during winter will be appropriate. When potted they prefer good drainage, but they need constant moisture levels to do well especially in Bangalore conditions.

Preferably shallow baskets with free draining material with wads of sphagnum moss will help to maintain moisture levels. They like to be in warm conditions but with lots of air circulation.
