Pholidota roseans is a species from China. In the wild this species is a lithophyte that inhabits evergreen forests at elevations between 800 and 1,200 metres. Plants look very similar to Pholidota longipes. Inflorescences measure 10-15 cm and bear several flowers that each measure 0.8 cm across. Plants usually bloom during the winter months.


This plant is flowering size and is growing in a pot with a fine bark and moss mix. Grow Pholidota roseans on a mount or in a pot and use moss mixed with bark and perlite as a media. Make sure the plant gets sufficient air movement particularly when gown in humidity above 70%; always ensure that humidity is sufficiently high and give the plant moderate to bright light. Plants need to be grown wet; I grow this species sitting in a small amount of water on capillary matting. This species likes an intermediate greenhouse with night low temperatures of 14-17 degrees and daytime temperatures of 24-30 degrees. Plants will grow indoors if cool night temperatures, sufficient humidity and air circulation are provided.
