Basket or small slotted pot, it seems to grow well in a variety of medias and is very tolerant provided it is well drained. Comes from the Philippines, and is a warm to intermediate grower.
Aerides jarkinaum produces a lot of nectar, and the flowers are often wet and waxy, with a drop of nectar clinging to the spur.
