These are some
of the most delicate needle-like leaves Ive ever seen on an orchid.
Combine that with delicate, spidery flowers of significant color and you
have a stunning, unusual beauty! Often misidentified as teritifolium,
linearifolium seems to do well plaqued, or when placed in a basket. Culture
would obviously be a bit different depending on the method that you choose.
We have had good success with cork and a fairly significant pad of coconut
fiber. This seems to indicate that dryness will prevent the species from
doing very well. As with most of the species from northern Madagascar
that we grow, year round moisture and weak fertilizer keeps our plants
well hydrated and able to bloom regularly in late winter and early spring.
We keep ours in a shady location with good air movement.
