Q.

My epiphyte is not doing well

Zone 6, Leesburg VA | TerryInLeesburg added on March 16, 2015 | Answered

We have had this for about 4 years now. We water it (mist) a number of times a week, have tried using fertilized water (an not fertilized), does not seem to make much difference. It is in our sun-room, where it gets lots (8+hours) of indirect sunlight. Not sure what to do for it...

What kind of epiphyte is this? Since you have switched up your watering and fertilizing habits without success, I would suggest you consider a change of venue for the plant. I would try moving the plant in moderate light in the bathroom where it can get water from shower steam and see if it perks up.
