A magnificent Angraecoid from Madagascar. Basket culture is the best method, use a coarse open media. When not in active growth, reduce the water as these plants do not like to be wet. Sobenikoffia humbertiana and species basically require something to anchor to, a little extra shade and maximum ventilation. A warm to intermediate grower. Many Angraecoids are prone to attack from spider mite, which can be controlled when detected by dipping the whole plant in a solution of wettable sulphur. This should be repeated a couple of times, about 3 days apart.
