Ascocenda ‘Meda Arnold’ bears masses of large, pink-red flowers on mid-green stems. It can be grown in pots with orchid compost or hung in the air in a greenhouse or conservatory. For best results, mist frequently. Plants do best in well-lit situations, and can be grown in full sunlight. If growing your Ascocenda as a hanging plant, take it down once a week, fully submerge it in water for a few minutes, and return it to its growing position. Reduce watering in autumn.
