 Isabelia virginalis is native to Brazil. They are originally collected in the Organ Mountains to the northeast of Rio de Janeiro. It is known that plants also occur in coastal mountains in the states of Rio de Janeiro, San Paulo and Parana. The habitat of the species extends inland to the mountains of Minas Gerais. They usually grow on small twigs and on boughs in cool, misty forests, but they also grow in rock crevices and rubble pockets on eroded sandstones at Vila Velha near Ponta Grossa in the State of Parana. These plants are also found at an altitude of 500-600 m in areas where the sum of annual precipitation is about 1200 mm.

Temperature:

 It is a thermophilic plant. In summer the average day temperature is 27 ° C, the night 15-19 ° C, which gives a daily difference of 11-14 ° C. In winter, the average daytime temperatures are 21-22 ° C and the night 9-10 ° C, with a daily amplitude of 11-12 ° C.

Humidity:

 The Virgin Isabella Orchid needs the humidity of 80-85% throughout the year.

Substrate, growing media and repotting:

 Isabelia virginalis has a slightly propagating and creeping habit, so it is usually easier to grow it attached to a small twig with a rough bark or a piece of tree fern. Fixed plants, however, require high humidity and at least daily watering in the summer, and in the case of dry and hot weather, you may need to water several times a day. The plants can be grown in baskets or shallow pots with a height equal to half the width, but the substrate must quickly dry and must not be obsolete or soggy. Repotting or dividing plants should be done when the growth of new roots begins.

Watering:

 Precipitation is moderate to strong throughout the year, with slightly less in autumn and winter. The plants should be provided with the right amount of moisture throughout the year.

Rest period:

 Isabelia virginalis need less water if the amount of light is low or the days are short, which is typical for higher latitudes. However, these plants should never be dried. Fertilization should be reduced until more intense watering starts in the spring.
