Being a species that grows in a coastal climate, It does just fine where I live.

Beautiful I love mounted orchids but I just can't do as many as I want do to the fact that mounts that aren't winter resting dens have to come in the house in the winter months and hoseing down mounted orchids in the house is not advanced😂

Very inspiring, thanks for sharing. Have to rethink potting vs mounting as these look to be doing very well mounted. Not sure I have the space. :)
Mounted or potted it definetely enjoys to stay in the warmer and more ventilated part of the GH.
Like Cat. warneri It grows the new bulbs during the winter months so It needs lot of light and warm during the coldest months. It also likes to dry its roots up quickly after watering.

One question on the monster. What do you have it mounted on? Do you have a technique that works best? Thanks!
Pete, what works best Is the right environment.
Anyway, It depends on the vigor of the cultivar.
I mounted the "Monster" on a big cork suspended in an orizontal position, then I also use a half coconut for the smaller ones or those that make just a bulb x year, the coerulea Is mounted vertically on cork. If you have not much humidity put sfagnum below the plant.

Cork is a great mount both vertically and horizontally. I also use cedar shakes (UNtreated). Flat plastic baskets work well also, both right side up, inverted and vertically.
